John Hodgman
“Generally speaking, I think it is fair to say that I am a friend to the creatures of the Earth when I am not busy eating them or wearing them.”
John Hodgman

Katy Butler
“optimistic, science-worshipping culture wants to medicalize aging and make it nothing more than a collection of specific diseases that medicine can prevent or fix, one item at a time. But no matter what deal we make with the devil, nature outwits us. Dying can be postponed, but aging cannot be cured.”

Brené Brown, The Gifts of Imperfection: Let Go of Who You Think You're Supposed to Be and Embrace Who You Are

“Kindness may be the most difficult of virtues, but when I have encountered it, it has meant everything to me.”

“The thing that is really hard, and really amazing, is giving up on being perfect and beginning the work of becoming yourself.”
