A little "Wisdom" for the weekend.

"You don't have to be rich & you don't have to be an army... If you find yourself in a situation that needs to be changed, if you're willing to offer your life for it - you might actually get something done."

- Bernice Johnson Reagon. (3m40s)

“Inspired by the idea that wisdom is the greatest gift one generation can give to another, award-winning photographer and filmmaker Andrew Zuckerman interviewed, photographed and filmed 50 of the world's great writers, actors, artists, designers, politicians, musicians and religious and business leaders of our time. He posed seven questions to each of his subjects - all over 65 years of age”

I got the Book / DVD combination of this project for Christmas and can thoroughly reccommend it. It is certainly worth 5 minutes of your morning to watch the video below. If you like it, go buy it!
