Wise advice

My father sent me an interesting quotation: “Days are scrolls: write on them only what you want remembered” by .  This is wise advice for life – and blogging too. 

A quick Google search revealed this saying occurring in social media fairly frequently – and Wiki informed me that this philosopher lived in Spain in the first half of the 11th century and authored the first Jewish system of ethics written in Arabic in 1040.  Apparently he drew on philosophical and scientific Arabic, Greek and Roman literature seeking a coherent system of ethical teaching.  His position was to reflect duties of the heartwith regard to inner ideals and moral obligations, not simply observing laws.
