PBS NEWS HOUR INTERVIEW 2/22/2012 WITH AUTHOR, ROGER ROSENBLATT
I heard the interview with Mr. Rosenblatt about his book, “Kayak Morning” NY [Times book review] click here. On the PBS interview he mentioned the quote above. I have not read his book, but his presence during the interview and the quote really peaked my interest
“Be kind, for everyone you meet is carrying a heavy burden”. Words to keep in mind when dealing with all sentient beings. Mr. Rosenblatt attributes the quote to Philo.
For a ink to the PBS interview click here. My search around Philo brought me to this link. I am assuming this is the philosopher Mr. Rosenblatt was referring to. The quote attributed to Philo is slightly different.
Thanks to the two people who wrote in before I updated this post 8/2013. At the time I wrote the original entry I was not able to find the interview with Mr. Rosenblatt.
