Stephen Fry: What I Wish I’d Known When I Was 18

Reward yourself half an hour and listen to these words of wisdom. Oh Stephen Fry, we need more people like you. We need less egocentric and more kindness. “I suppose the thing I’d most would have like to have known or be reassured about is that in the world is what counts more than talent, what counts more than energy or concentration or commitment or anything else is kindness. And the more in the world you encounter kindness and cheerfulness, which is kind of its amiable uncle or aunt, just the better the world always is - and all the big words, virtue, justice, truth are dwarfed by the greatness of kindness.” Via The Culturist
