Book cover for The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck: A Counterintuitive Approach to Living a Good Life
You can’t be an important and life-changing presence for some people without also being a joke and an embarrassment to others. You just can’t.
Yaa Gyasi
“We read the Bible how we want to read it. It doesn't change, but we do.”
Yaa Gyasi, Transcendent Kingdom

George Saunders
“Strange, isn't it? To have dedicated one's life to a certain venture, neglecting other aspects of one's life, only to have that venture, in the end, amount to nothing at all, the products of one's labors ultimately forgotten?”
George Saunders, Lincoln in the Bardo

Emily Nagoski
“Raise your hand if you've asked yourself, How much more do I have to do before I've done enough? How much of myself do I have to give? How smoothly do I have to polish myself before I can move through the world without friction?”
Emily Nagoski, Burnout: The Secret to Unlocking the Stress Cycle

Brené Brown
“If you are not in the arena getting your ass kicked on occasion, I’m not interested in or open to your feedback. There are a million cheap seats in the world today filled with people who will never be brave with their lives but who will spend every ounce of energy they have hurling advice and judgment at those who dare greatly. Their only contributions are criticism, cynicism, and fearmongering. If you’re criticizing from a place where you’re not also putting yourself on the line, I’m not interested in what you have to say.”
Brené Brown, Dare to Lead: Brave Work. Tough Conversations. Whole Hearts.

Brené Brown
“If you have more than three priorities, you have no priorities”
Brené Brown, Dare to Lead: Brave Work. Tough Conversations. Whole Hearts.
