You really can apply the scientific method to love and relationships and human happiness.

If you can buy a hard copy of the book then buy it. It is impossible to follow the maths with the endless scrolling of an e-book.. Unless you are very used to m

Slowness by Milan Kundera
“¡Cambiar el mundo! ¡Qué monstruoso propósito para Pontevin! No porque el mundo sea admirable tal como está, sino porque cuqlquier cambio conduce inevitablemente a lo peor.”
Milan Kundera
Rebecca shared a quote
Slowness by Milan Kundera
“La manera como se cuenta la Historia contemporánea se asemeja a un
gran concierto en el que se presentaran seguidos los ciento treinta y ocho opus
de Beethoven, pero tocando tan sólo los ocho primeros tiempos de cada uno de
ellos. Si volviera a hacerse el mismo concierto diez años después, sólo se
tocaría, de cada pieza, la primera nota, siendo, pues, ciento treinta y ocho notas
durante todo el concierto, presentadas como una única melodía. Y, veinte años
después, toda la música de Beethoven quedaría resumida en una única
larguísima nota aguda que se asemejaría a la que oyó, infinita y muy alta, el
primer día de su sordera.”
Milan Kundera

Nathaniel Hawthorne
“No man, for any considerable period, can wear one face to himself and another to the multitude, without finally getting bewildered as to which may be the true.”
Nathaniel Hawthorne, The Scarlet Letter

Margaret Atwood
“Women have curious ways of hurting someone else. They hurt themselves instead; or else they do it so the guy doesn't even know he's been hurt until much later. Then he finds out. Then his dick falls off.”
Margaret Atwood, The Blind Assassin

Fyodor Dostoyevsky
“he was partly a young man of our time - that is, honest by nature, demanding the truth, seeking it and believing in it, and in that belief demanding immediate participation in it with all the strength of his soul; demanding an immediate deed, with an unfailing desire to sacrifice everything for this deed, even life. Although, unfortunately, these young men do not understand that the sacrifice of life is, perhaps, the easiest of all sacrifices in many cases, while to sacrifice, for example, five or six years of their ebulliently youthful life to hard, difficult studies, to learning, in order to increase tenfold their strength to serve the very truth and the very deed that they loved and set out to accomplish - such sacrifice is often almost beyond the strength of many of them.”
Fyodor Dostoyevsky, The Brothers Karamozov

J.D. Salinger
“I'm the most terrific liar you ever saw in your life. It's awful. If I'm on my way to the store to buy a magazine, even, and somebody asks me where I'm going, I'm liable to say I'm going to the opera. It's terrible.”
J.D. Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye

Christopher Hitchens
“Everybody does have a book in them, but in most cases that's where it should stay.”
Christopher Hitchens
