Elizabeth Gilbert
“Il bel far niente means 'the beauty of doing nothing'... [it] has always been a cherished Italian ideal. The beauty of doing nothing is the goal of all your work, the final accomplishment for which you are most highly congratulated. The more exquisitely and delightfully you can do nothing, the higher your life's achievement. You don't necessarily need to be rich in order to experience this, either.”
Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love

Nassim Nicholas Taleb

Garth Stein
“But somewhere, a child surprises himself with his endurance, his quick mind, his dexterous hands. Somewhere a child accomplishes with ease that which usually takes great effort.

Garth Stein, The Art of Racing in the Rain

John Green
“I realized that all my life, my values were based upon typical middle-class American values: hard work, doing good, living well, owning things, following the rules & being the best I can be... but God clearly says, "those are not MY values. I value justice, mercy & humility.”
John Green

Sherry Turkle
“When Thoreau considered "where I live and what I live for," he tied together location and values. Where we live doesn't just change how we live; it informs who we become. Most recently, technology promises us lives on the screen. What values, Thoreau would ask, follow from this new location? Immersed in simulation, where do we live, and what do we live for?”
Sherry Turkle, Alone Together: Why We Expect More from Technology and Less from Each Other

Deborah Day
“One is often so busy doing life that it is easy to avoid evaluating whether you are putting your energy in the direction you value most.”

Tiffany Madison
“It should surprise no one that modern soldiers return home just as conflicted and detached as previous generations. The difference is that in the age of vapid American decadence, their simpler fundamental values are largely irrelevant to we civilians.”
Tiffany Madison

Charlie Brooker
“If you truly believe you need to pick a mobile phone that "says something" about your personality, don't bother. You don't have a personality. A mental illness, maybe - but not a personality.”
Charlie Brooker

Mark Manson
“Good values are 1) reality-based, 2) socially constructive, and 3) immediate and controllable. Bad values are 1) superstitious, 2) socially destructive, and 3) not immediate or controllable. Good, healthy values are achieved internally. Something like creativity or humility that can be experienced right now. You simply have to orient your mind in a certain way to experience it. These values are immediate and controllable and engage you with the world as it is rather than how you wish it were. Bad values are generally reliant on external events.”
Mark Manson, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck: A Counterintuitive Approach to Living a Good Life

Judy Dippel
“Make your friends a priority, so they are not lost to the black hole of a busy, hurried life.”
Judy Dippel, Friendship Interrupted: Challenges and Practical Solutions - What You Can Do

Kate McGahan
“Oh, to let go of the tangible things and believe in the intangibles like
love, joy and faith. It is a hard lesson, for humans are taught that money buys stability but look, there are many rich people who are so unhappy! Look around. The world is yours for the taking. Love is its most precious resource. When we are all united in Heaven, you will value nothing that you have valued here. There is a sense of peace so deep no dream in this world has ever brought even a dim imagining of it.”
Kate McGahan, Jack McAfghan: Return from Rainbow Bridge

Shauna Niequist
“We have, each one of us, been entrusted with one life, made up of days and hours and minutes. We're spending them according to our values, whether or not we admit it.”
Shauna Niequist, Bread and Wine: A Love Letter to Life Around the Table with Recipes

“ماذا تصنع أقلامنا إذا لم تجاهد حتى يعتدل على سنانها ترتيب القيم ؟
ففي حياتنا قيم - هذا صحيح - لكن أسفلها قدرا موضوع بأعلاها وأعلاها أنزلناه حتى بات أسفلها ألم نرفع من شأن النفوذ والجاه والسلطان حتى جعلناه قمة القمم ثم ألم نهبط بقيمة العمل حتى جعلناه أرضا تدوس عليها الأقدام ؟
فماذا تصنع الأقلام إذا هي لم تغير عقولنا ونفوسنا فتتغير هذه الأوضاع”
زكي نجيب محمود, أفكار ومواقف

Daniel   Kemp
“It is better to write in order to find what you are than to write to find what price others put on you!”
Daniel Kemp

“The goal of all principled people is to recognize truth. Simple or complex thoughts and feelings standing alone rarely express any universal truths. Thoughts and feelings combine to create profound truths and compose extravagant falsities. Truth making exposes certain falsehoods, and lies shed light upon irrefutable truths. Art reveals the pageantry of nature along with the unmitigated grotesqueness that accompanies an earthly life. The search for truth begins with an intellectual journey into darkness whereas the search for beauty requires an imaginative act trussed with the classical beauty of Apollonian lightness. Aesthetic appreciation represents the perfect reconciliation of the sensual and rational parts of humankind’s animalistic nature. Similar to aesthetic experience – contemplation of beauty without imposition of a worldly agenda – love depends upon human sensory-emotional values, a judgement of values and sentiments.”
Kilroy J. Oldster, Dead Toad Scrolls

Daniel   Kemp
“Intellect counts for nothing if it doesn't wear a designer label.”
Daniel Kemp

“They might make you feel that you are useless or incomplete. Don't let it affect you. Keep calm and let your future prove them your worth.”
Amen Muffler

“If money is your only measure of success, do not be surprised when it is all you have.”
Wayne Gerard Trotman

“A world with decaying values will continue to produce world chaos and violence”
Joe Mehl

“As more data become available and as the economy continues to change, the ability to ask the
right questions will become even more vital. No matter how bright the light is, you won’t find your
keys by searching under a lamppost if that’s not where you lost them.”
Erik Brynjolfsson and Andrew McAfee

“Find way to be a good person, and give your time on things that are most important.”
Karma nidup
