Toward the end of the movie Bucket List, after Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholson finish climbing to the top of a pyramid in Egypt, Freeman asks Nicholson two questions.
He says, “The ancient Egyptians had a beautiful belief about death. When their souls go to the entrance of heaven the gods asked them two questions.
Their answers determined whether they were admitted or not.”
Question 1: Have you found joy?
Question 2: Has your life brought joy to others?”
— Prince from song Anna Stesia (Live from One Nite Alone tour)
We should champion our similarities not our differences. We should meet on a higher level, instead of looking at White-Black, Rich & Poor, Young-Old — differences, differences – diversity.
Let’s meet somewhere higher.”
— Ben Graham (link)
