Enjoy - 100 Years of Entertainment
“There are 5000 years of entertainment and knowledge. From the ancient Egypt we have documented the art and knowledge of people who lived before us. The Bible, the Greek tragedies, Greek and Roman art, the various civilizations of the world, the history of nations. And most of these things we can quickly reach through books, television and especially the internet. Works of geniuses such as Dante, Rembrandt, Picasso, Mozart, Beethoven, Shakespeare, all the best art. We can see a painting that took years for Da Vinci to paint and perfect with all convenience and without leaving home through the Internet, or hear a Beethoven masterpiece that he corrected a thousand times until he thought that it was perfect, played for us by an entire orchestra through a YouTube video. And not just art. There is an international television channel which has the slogan "100 years of entertainment." Television, that entertainment center! How many masterpieces of cinema and how many television shows have been made to date. Follow one of these lists, top 100 books according to the Times, 100 best movies according to IMDB, visit some museums, or the Seven Wonders of the World, participate in a festival of classical music, cinema, painting, art, read! There is entertainment in this world that doesn’t end and with your wealth you can enjoy all of it. It is a fact that when we recall our life, what leaves most striking memories are not designer watches, or beautiful things, but experiences, art, travels, entertainment. Take part in this world, cultivate a passion for a sport, for an activity, parachute jumps, fly an airplane, create a foundation to help people, receive and give.”
Excerpt from my previous self-help book, “Mr. Psychologist, Tell me how to be happy!”
There are actually 100 Years of Entertainment and 5000 years of culture and art. Through the internet, radio and television, we have most of that culture and entertainment literally at our fingertips. Sometimes I spend hours on YouTube watching music videos of songs of recent years, of recent decades, sometimes excerpts from old programs, old movies, musicals, opera, concerts. How lucky we are!
So many geniuses lived before us and made so many things recorded in books, music CDs, in paintings, statues. Our cities around the world breathe history and are steeped in the past, present and future.
The brightest minds in the world, the most remarkable comedians, the most fantastic and extroverts musicians (Michael Jackson, Elvis Presley, Prince, Sinatra...), the most brilliant and creative writers, the most impressive and talented actors, the most extraordinary voices, the most brilliant scientists and mathematicians, the most imaginative filmmakers and movie producers. All this at our disposal.
Please don’t live without knowing these geniuses of the past and present, don’t live without art and culture. You have at your disposal 5000 documented years in books, CDs, museums, libraries, Internet, Cities.
