Nassim Nicholas Taleb
“Missing a train is only painful if you run after it! Likewise, not matching the idea of success others expect from you is only painful if that’s what you are seeking.”
Nassim Nicholas Taleb, The Black Swan: The Impact of the Highly Improbable

Nassim Nicholas Taleb
“It is my great hope someday, to see science and decision makers rediscover what the ancients have always known. Namely that our highest currency is respect.”

Ben Fountain
“Billy nods and turns to the window. He knows he will never see Faison again, but how can he know? How does anyone ever know anything—the past is a fog that breathes out ghost after ghost, the present a freeway thunder run at 90 mph, which makes the future the ultimate black hole of futile speculation. And yet he knows, at least he thinks he knows, he feels it seeded in the purest certainty of his grief as he finds his seat belt and snaps it shut, that snick like the final lock of a vast and complex system. He’s in. Bound for the war. Good-bye, good-bye, good night, I love you all. He sits back, closes his eyes, and tries to think about nothing as the limo takes them away.”
Ben Fountain, Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk

Zora Neale Hurston
“Love is lak de sea. It’s uh movin’ thing, but still and all, it takes its shape from de shore it meets, and it’s different with every shore.”
Zora Neale Hurston, Their Eyes Were Watching God

John Steinbeck
“The quick pain of truth can pass away, but the slow, eating agony of a lie is never lost. That's a running sore.”
John Steinbeck, East of Eden
