Benjamin Zander: Classical music with shining eyes

This video is a gem. This guy has a wonderful philosophy on life. How many people can he influence who leave his presence with shining eyes?
He also plays the piano very well too.

Another great TED talk, it is well worth 20 minutes of your time. One of the commentators to this video wrote "I've seen 174 TEDs, this I'll remember as the one that made me clap without noticing! "
His last phrase is worth writing down and looking at everyday.

He quotes an Auschwitz survivor who as a result of a big regret in her life made a vow. She told him "I will never say anything that couldn't stand as the last thing I'll ever say."
