“Remembering that I'll be dead soon is the most important tool I've ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life.

Almost everything--all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure--these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. 

Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart. 

No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don't want to die to get there. And yet, death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it, and that is how it should be, because death is very likely the single best invention of life. It's life's change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new.” 

—Steve Jobs


“What am I supposed to eat? How can it be that every beast, every fish, every insect—every other critter on the face of the planet—can figure this out so easily, and yet here we are, still wondering?”

Long before we had the kinetic theory of gases (and thus an accurate definition of what was being measured), thermometers were making useful, valid, and reliable measurements of temperature. I see a similar situation for IQ testing.

Laura Ingalls Wilder and the "slightly restrained anarchy of capitalism"

"I am now a fundamentalist American; give me time and I will tell you why individualism, laissez faire and the slightly restrained anarchy of capitalism offer the best opportunities for the development of the human spirit. Also I will tell you why the relative freedom of human spirit is better — and more productive, even in material ways — than the communist, Fascist, or any other rigidity organized for material ends."

To Build a Curiousity

“The trouble with him was that he was without imagination. He was quick and alert in the things of life, but only in the things, and not in the significances.”
—Jack London, To Build a Fire
