I expected this book would be a very simple message extrapolated out to several hundred pages, but it turned out to be much more riveting than that. The research was fascinating and the lessons were clear.

Marcus Aurelius
“From the philosopher Catulus, never to be dismissive of a friend's accusation, even if it seems unreasonable, but to make every effort to restore the relationship to its normal condition.”
Marcus Aurelius, Meditations

Chuck Palahniuk
“You realize that people take drugs because it's the only real personal adventure left to them in their time-constrained, law-and-order, property-lined world. It's only in drugs or death we'll see anything new, and death is just too controlling.”
Chuck Palahniuk, Survivor

Yuval Noah Harari
“Consistency is the playground of dull minds.”
Yuval Noah Harari, Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind

Marcus Aurelius
“Begin each day by telling yourself: Today I shall be meeting with interference, ingratitude, insolence, disloyalty, ill-will, and selfishness – all of them due to the offenders’ ignorance of what is good or evil.”
Marcus Aurelius, Meditations

Sarah Dessen
“What you have to decide... is how you want your life to be. If your forever was ending tomorrow, would this be how you'd want to have spent it? Listen, the truth is, nothing is guaranteed. You know that more than anybody. So dont be afraid. Be alive.”
Sarah Dessen, The Truth About Forever
