A Few Good Words (Part I & II)

From the Tapestry Website:

The philosopher A.C. Grayling calls it a sobering bit of mathematics. Our lives will last less than one-thousand months. And how many of those months will be spent sleeping – or grocery shopping –  or paying bills?  That’s why, he says, it’s vitally important to live every moment to its fullest. And the best way to do that, is to call on the wisdom of the ages and apply it to the problems of today.

Grayling has combed through 2,500 years of literature, history and ethics, to produce his own version of a good book – he calls it his “secular bible”. This week on Tapestry, Mary Hynes talks with Anthony Grayling and with listeners who have collected their own inspirational quotations and words to live by.

The book is entitled, “The Good Book:  A Humanist Bible”
