Wise Words from Patti Smith


Patti Smith: Advice to the young from Louisiana Channel on Vimeo.

I tend to err on the side of thinking I'm right. I think I know a lot. I consider myself a smart person. But then I do something like watch this video of Patti Smith extolling wisdom to young people, and I immediately realize how little I know about the world- and more importantly, how much people like Patti Smith know about the world, and life in general. Her advice reminds me of Ira Glass's Advice for Beginners, which is potentially my 2nd favorite thing on the internet (right behind the He-Man video) and is something I want to remind myself of everyday.

I hope she inspires you as much as she has inspired me.
