The secret of happiness is freedom. The secret of freedom is courage.   

Thucydides 471 BC – 400 BC)

She was 108 years old at the interview below, wrote her book “A Garden of Eden in Hell” when she was 104 and practises piano 3 hours each day.  Alice was born on 26 November 1903 in Prague; and died on 23 February 2014 in London, age 110.

Alice Hertz Sommer exudes gratitude and fun: “I know about the bad, but I look at the good things.  Smiling helps.  Everything is a present.”     My sentiments exactly.    Enjoy the uplifting perspective of this wonderful woman.

I was born listening to my Father play these piano pieces and the music on his 78s which are, indeed emotional and spiritual food,  for which I shall be eternally grateful.


Beautiful Spring Blessings and big smiles to you All!
