Sad that Friedman couldn't have finished this before his untimely death. The editors did a great job producing a finished version from his manuscripts. Still, some pieces seem fragmented, as though the thoughts weren't as refined as they would have b ...more

“There is not one blade of grass, there is no color in this world that is not intended to make us rejoice.”
John Calvin

Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi
“A good pilot knows her skills, has confidence in the machine she is flying, and is aware of what actions are required in case of a hurricane, or in case the wings ice over. Therefore she is confident in her ability to cope with whatever weather conditions may arise—not because she will force the plane to obey her will, but because she will be the instrument for matching the properties of the plane to the conditions of the air.”
Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, Flow

“Be careful about reading health books. Some fine day you'll die of a misprint.”

Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi
“The mystique of rock climbing is climbing; you get to the top of a rock glad it’s over but really wish it would go on forever. The justification of climbing is climbing, like the justification of poetry is writing; you don’t conquer anything except things in yourself…. The act of writing justifies poetry. Climbing is the same: recognizing that you are a flow. The purpose of the flow is to keep on flowing, not looking for a peak or utopia but staying in the flow. It is not a moving up but a continuous flowing; you move up to keep the flow going. There is no possible reason for climbing except the climbing itself; it is a self-communication.”
Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, Flow

Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi
“Although watching TV is far from being a positive experience—generally people report feeling passive, weak, rather irritable, and sad when doing it—at least the flickering screen brings a certain amount of order to consciousness. The predictable plots, familiar characters, and even the redundant commercials provide a reassuring pattern of stimulation. The screen invites attention to itself as a manageable, restricted aspect of the environment. While interacting with television, the mind is protected from personal worries. The information passing across the screen keeps unpleasant concerns out of the mind.”
