Andre Malraux

Lost And Found

06/04/2008
Rabbi David Wolpe is spiritual leader of Sinai Temple in Los Angeles.

The French writer Andre Malraux opens his autobiography, “Anti-Memoirs,” with the story of meeting an old comrade — a soldier with whom he fought in the war many years ago. The man subsequently became a priest. He told Malraux that from years of listening to confessions he had learned two things about human nature: that people have more trouble than he imagined and that “there is no such thing as a grown-up.”
