A Journalist Compiled Quotes About Every Age of Life and Wove Them into a Moving TED Talk
In this engaging TED Talk, journalist Joshua Prager illustrates the stages of life with quotations from Norman Mailer, Joyce Carol Oates, William Trevor and other great writers. Each quote pinpoints a particular age: 22, 44, 62, 95 … and shows the commonalities within human life. "Books tell us who we've been, who we are, who we will be, too," Prager says. This six-minute talk is brimming with wisdom and guidance.
