Haruki Murakami
“Spend your money on the things money can buy. Spend your time on the things money can’t buy.”
Haruki Murakami, The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle

Nick Bostrom
“(On one estimate, the adult human brain stores about one billion bits—a couple of orders of magnitude less than a low-end smartphone.”
Nick Bostrom, Superintelligence: Paths, Dangers, Strategies

Jennifer Egan
“She wanted the city to be full of exclusive places turning people away, as long as they always accommodated her. It didn’t work like that. What a stupid place to live—stretched thin, overbooked, sold out in advance.”
Jennifer Egan, The Best American Short Stories 2014

Jennifer Egan
“After my parents died, it took me months before I could carry on a conversation with someone who had not known them, who expected me to be young and sparkling and untouched by grief.”
Jennifer Egan, The Best American Short Stories 2014

Maya Angelou
“I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
