At at dinner party, we should ask people what their story is
Interviewer: What is the perfect Guy Raz dinner party question?
Guy Raz : One question is not enough. You can ask: What’s your greatest fear? Your biggest desire? Your biggest failure? But those questions don’t always elicit great answers.
The reality is that every single person has a story to tell. They’ve gone through a crisis, had heartache, suffered loss, etc.
What I’ve found is when you really know someone’s story, it’s really hard to not empathize with them. In a perfect world, we would all know each other’s stories. So at a perfect dinner party, I would want everyone to tell their life story.
Happiness consists in frequent repetition of pleasure.
I wish you endless dreams and the furious desire to make some of them come true.
I wish you to love what you need to love and forget what you need to forget.
I wish you passions, I wish you silences. I wish you bird songs on waking up and children's laughter.
I wish you to respect the differences of others, because the merit and value of each one is often to be discovered. I wish you to resist the bogging down, the indifference and the negative virtues of our times.
Finally, I wish you never to give up research, adventure, life, love, because life is a magnificent adventure and no reasonable person should give it up without fighting a hard battle.
Above all, I wish you to be you, proud and happy, because happiness is our true destiny.
