Book cover for The Rosie Project
Asperger’s syndrome is associated with organisation, focus, innovative thinking and rational detachment.’
Jay Shetty
“No matter what you think your values are, your actions tell the real story. What we do with our spare time shows what we value. For instance, you might put spending time with your family at the top of your list of values, but if you spend all your free time playing golf, your actions don’t match your values, and you need to do some self-examination.”
Jay Shetty, Think Like a Monk: Train Your Mind for Peace and Purpose Every Day

“beautiful things don’t always make the best subjects for papers. Number one, research must be original — and as anyone who has written a PhD dissertation knows, the way to be sure you’re exploring virgin territory is to stake out a piece of ground that no one wants. Number two, research must be substantial — and awkward systems yield meatier papers, because you can write about the obstacles you have to overcome in order to get things done. Nothing yields meaty problems like starting with the wrong assumptions.”
Paul Graham, Hackers and Painters: Big Ideas from the Computer Age

“The more we define ourselves in relation to the people around us, the more lost we are.”
