Going forward, if ever I am asked why I write, my answer will be - Edgar Allan Poe, Patrick Rothfuss and ... Shirley Jackson. I write because it is my soul's craving and, while inherently cemented inside, is no doubt influenced by the stories these ...more

Outer Order, Inner Calm by Gretchen Rubin
Rate this book
Clear rating
100% on board with the premise. Outer order absolutely contributes to inner calm. Personally, I can't even function properly, let alone start on a project, if my space is out of order. So, a while back, I started this fun new thing where I put my ...more

Greta Thunberg
“We must change almost everything in our current societies.
The bigger your carbon footprint - the bigger your moral duty.
The bigger your platform - the bigger your responsibility.
Adults keep saying: 'We owe it to the young people to given them hope.'
But I don't want your hope.
I don't want you to be hopeful.
I want you to panic.
I want you to feel the fear I feel every day.
And then I want you to act.
I want you to act as you would in a crisis.
I want you to act as if our house is on fire.
Because it is.”
Greta Thunberg, No One Is Too Small to Make a Difference

Sam Harris
“Honest people are a refuge: You know they mean what they say; you know they will not say one thing to your face and another behind your back; you know they will tell you when they think you have failed—and for this reason their praise cannot be mistaken for mere flattery.”

“We must find the way of love rather than that of being loved.”
Gyomay M. Kubose, Everyday Suchness: Buddhist Essays on Everyday Living

Sam Harris
“Lying is, almost by definition, a refusal to cooperate with others. It condenses a lack of trust and trustworthiness into a single act. It is both a failure of understanding and an unwillingness to be understood. To lie is to recoil from relationship.”
Sam Harris, Lying
