Book cover for The Beginner's Guide to Todoist
Unless a task has a hard deadline, don’t assign one to it. Give it a priority and assign it to a project. You will go back to each project regularly anyway and evaluate the tasks there.
Caitlin Moran
“I’m very into the idea of sorting things out through superior paperwork. This is my favorite transformatory power.”
Caitlin Moran, How to Be a Woman

Pascal Mercier
“I start trembling at the very thought of the unplanned and unknown, but inevitable and unstoppable force with which parents leave traces in their children that, like traces of branding, can never be erased. The outlines of parental will and fear are written with a white-hot stylus in the souls of the children who are helpless and ignorant of what is happening to them. We need a whole life to find and decipher the branded text and we can never be sure we have understood it.”
Pascal Mercier, Night Train to Lisbon

Eric Klinenberg
“For most of us, Facebook friends and Instagram followers are supplements to -- not surrogates for -- our social lives. As meaningful as the friendships we establish online can be, most of us are unsatisfied with virtual ties that never develop into face-to-face relationships. Building real connections requires a shared physical environment -- a social infrastructure.”
Eric Klinenberg, Palaces for the People: How Social Infrastructure Can Help Fight Inequality, Polarization, and the Decline of Civic Life

Sally Cole-Misch
“Life happens so fast. I woke up a young man, at lunch I was middle aged, and by dinner I could imagine my own death. I long ago finished my wine, ale, and hors d'oeuvres, the main course was mostly a grand feast. Coffee has been served, and I hope for one last, sweet taste of dessert.”
Sally Cole-Misch

Nina George
“Death doesn't matter
It makes no difference to life.
We will always remain what we were to each other.”
Nina George, The Little Paris Bookshop
