“The first principle is that you must not fool yourself — and you are the easiest person to fool.” – Richard Feynman

“Her that I love, I wish to be free – even from me.”
“Don’t walk in front of me, I may not follow. Don’t walk behind me, I may not lead. Walk beside me and be my friend.”
‘The Great Man … is colder, harder, less hesitating, and without respect and without the fear of “opinion”; he lacks the virtues that accompany respect and “respectability”, and altogether everything that is the “virtue of the herd”. If he cannot lead, he goes alone. … He knows he is incommunicable: he finds it tasteless to be familiar. … When not speaking to himself, he wears a mask. There is a solitude within him that is inaccessible to praise or blame.’
– Friedrich Nietzsche, The Will to Power

Focused, hard work is the real key to success. Keep your eyes on the goal, and just keep taking the next step towards completing it. If you aren't sure which way to do something, do it both ways and see which works better. — John Carmack
Real? You want to talk about reality? We haven't lived in anything remotely close to it since the turn of the century! You'd have to dig pretty deep, kiddo, before you can find anything real. We live in a kingdom of bullshit, that even you have lived in for far too long.
Слово дня: wishful thinking.
The illusion that what you wish for is actually true.
We “put in effort” only towards the things we want, and not for the sake of the other person as a person. And we have bullshit questions (is he tall enough?, does he make enough?, is she pretty enough?) and we run at the first sign of trouble.

— Трудно общаться с человеком, который всех обсирает, как ты, понимаешь?
— Я тебя никогда не учил жить.
— Нет, нет, нет, ты сразу осуждал!
— Как мыслящее мясо, несмотря на необъективность самоидентификации, мы создаём свою личность вынося оценочные суждения. Так делают все, постоянно. Если тебя это беспокоит, то ты живёшь неправильно.
— А что такое мыслящее мясо?
