Brittany Binowski Brittany Binowski said: " Nietzsche is famous for this one phrase:

"God is dead, and we have killed him."

But the phrase is not finished. It's taken out of context.

If it were complete, it would read:

"God is dead, and we have killed him. Why? Because now we have become him."

Brittany Binowski is reading Joseph Smith: How does a 23 year old build a movement?

Divine inspiration helps. Courage. Fearlessness. And the special kind of personality that intuitively understands the hearts of people and the world, before they even know it themselves.

Cue Walt Whitman's poem, "To A Pupil" written around the same time frame.

What I liked about this book is that it's not about Joseph Smith's personality or the visionary theology; it's about creating an organization and community that stands the test of time.

How do you do that?

Skip the 150 pages in the middle of the book. Just read the beginning and the end. The background and history is long-winded and irrelevant, but the takeaways are golden.

Here's what I got from it:

Friedrich Nietzsche
“The life of the enemy . Whoever lives for the sake of combating an enemy has an interest in the enemy's staying alive.”
Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche

Steven Pressfield
“Are you a born writer? Were you put on earth to be a painter, a scientist, an apostle of peace? In the end the question can only be answered by action.

Do it or don't do it.

It may help to think of it this way. If you were meant to cure cancer or write a symphony or crack cold fusion and you don't do it, you not only hurt yourself, even destroy yourself,. You hurt your children. You hurt me. You hurt the planet.

You shame the angels who watch over you and you spite the Almighty, who created you and only you with your unique gifts, for the sole purpose of nudging the human race one millimeter farther along its path back to God.

Creative work is not a selfish act or a bid for attention on the part of the actor. It's a gift to the world and every being in it. Don't cheat us of your contribution. Give us what you've got.”
Steven Pressfield, The War of Art: Break Through the Blocks & Win Your Inner Creative Battles

“The opposite of love is not hate. It is indifference.”
Wilhelm Stekel, The Beloved Ego: Foundations of the New Study of the Psyche

Steven Pressfield
“. . . None of us are born as passive generic blobs waiting for the world to stamp its imprint on us. Instead we show up possessing already a highly refined and individuated soul.

Another way of thinking of it is: We're not born with unlimited choices.

We can't be anything we want to be.

We come into this world with a specific, personal destiny. We have a job to do, a calling to enact, a self to become. We are who we are from the cradle, and we're stuck with it.

Our job in this lifetime is not to shape ourselves into some ideal we imagine we ought to be, but to find out who we already are and become it.”
Steven Pressfield, The War of Art: Break Through the Blocks & Win Your Inner Creative Battles

Milan Kundera
“Tereza knew what happens during the moment love is born: the woman cannot resist the voice calling forth her terrified soul; the man cannot resist the woman whose soul thus responds to his voice.”
Milan Kundera, The Unbearable Lightness of Being
