“Fear doesn't prevent death. It prevents life.”

Jordan B. Peterson
“when once-naïve people recognize in themselves the seeds of evil and monstrosity, and see themselves as dangerous (at least potentially) their fear decreases. They develop more self-respect. Then, perhaps, they begin to resist oppression. They see that they have the ability to withstand, because they are terrible too. They see they can and must stand up, because they begin to understand how genuinely monstrous they will become, otherwise, feeding on their resentment, transforming it into the most destructive of wishes. To say it again: There is very little difference between the capacity for mayhem and destruction, integrated, and strength of character. This is one of the most difficult lessons of life.”
Jordan B. Peterson, 12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos

“To keep the body in good health is a duty... otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear.”

“I think everybody should get rich and famous and do everything they ever dreamed of so they can see that it's not the answer.”

“Never give up on what you really want to do. The person with big dreams is more powerful than one with all the facts.”
