“Albert Einstein said, “If you can’t explain something simply, you don’t understand it well enough.”
Jay Shetty, Think Like a Monk: Train Your Mind for Peace and Purpose Every Day

“The truth is that play seems to be one of the most advanced methods nature has invented to allow a complex brain to create itself.”
Stuart Brown, Play: How It Shapes the Brain, Opens the Imagination, and Invigorates the Soul

Anand Giridharadas
“Are we ready to hand over our future to the elite, one supposedly world-changing initiative at a time? Are we ready to call participatory democracy a failure, and to declare these other, private forms of change-making the new way forward? Is the decrepit state of American self-government an excuse to work around it and let it further atrophy? Or is meaningful democracy, in which we all potentially have a voice, worth fighting for?”
Anand Giridharadas, Winners Take All: The Elite Charade of Changing the World

Edith Eger
“But as long as you’re avoiding your feelings, you’re denying reality. And if you try to shut something out and say, “I don’t want to think about it,” I guarantee that you’re going to think about it. So invite the feeling in, sit down with it, keep it company. And then decide how long you’re going to hold on to it. Because you’re not a fragile little somebody. It’s good to face every reality. To stop fighting and hiding. To remember that a feeling is just a feeling—it’s not your identity.”
Edith Eger, The Gift: 12 Lessons to Save Your Life

“Authentic play comes from deep down inside us. It's not formed or motivated solely by others. Real play interacts with and involves the outside world, but it fundamentally expresses the needs and desires of the player.”
Stuart Brown
