Go Love Someone Today!

Stumbled on this post from Leonard Sweet on Google+: https://plus.google.com/112866432453100404517/posts/dNeUvFoF3YH 

George Wald (1906-1997) won the Nobel Prize in Medicine in 1967. Late in life (06 October 1980) he wrote a letter to the editor of the Boston Globe in which he put the prize in perspective: 

“The truth is, what one really needs is not Nobel Laureates, but love. How do you think one gets to be a Nobel Laureate? Wanting love, that’s how. Wanting it so bad one works all the time, and ends up a Nobel laureate. It’s a consolation Prize. What matters is love. . . . So just practice loving. Love a Russian. You’ll be surprised how easy it is, and how it will brighten your life. Love whales. Love an Iranian, a Vietnamese—-not just here, but there. Then, when you’ve gotten real good at it, try something hard. Try loving one of those candidates for President.”


Interesting how history repeats itself. Go love someone today!
