Loving People and A Compulsion to Share

I love this quote from conductor Leonard Bernstein. I don’t mean to trivialize his brilliant words by saying I feel the same about the diabetes online community.

“The original energizing motor that makes me compose is the urge to communicate — and to communicate with as many people as possible. Because what I love about the world and life is people, I like them as much as I like music, if not more. I love people, and I have a compulsion to share with people what I feel, what I know, what I think.” — Leonard Bernstein, Conductor, New York Philharmonic
