"To tame the savageness of man and make gentle the life of this world. Let us dedicate ourselves to that."
Aeschylus & Robert F. Kennedy
Kennedy shared Aeschylus's 2000+ year-old thought with an audience in Indianapolis the night Martin Luther King was killed.
I heard it during a wonderful podcast series by Pulitzer Prize-winning writer Jon Meacham called 'It Was Said.' It's an examination of several important speeches in American history ... perfect for a more inspiring commute or afternoon run. (I often think about how we could do something this valuable for you. Still thinking.)
Don't miss it if you enjoy history and great speeches. I learned about it while listening to his other inspiring podcast, 'Hope, Through History.' (Both available wherever you get your podcasts.)
"Make gentle the life of this world." Be a better part of someone's day and Work Kindly.
