Thus spake the wise

Mary Catherine Bateson “Famous people are interesting, but there’s a kind of a distancing phenomena there. I’m interested in the creativity that we all put into our lives. Picasso’s life story is not empowering to the creativity of ordinary people. What is empowering is looking at someone that they can identify with. And becoming aware of what they’re already doing.”

Nassim Nicholas Taleb “Modernity’s double punishment is to make us both age prematurely and live longer.”

Marilyn Monroe
“I’m selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can’t handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don’t deserve me at my best.”

Erich Fromm
“Self-love is the foundation of a sane society.”

Ayn Rand
“I write-and read-for the sake of story. My basic test for any story is: Would I want to meet these characters and observe these events on real life? Is this story an experience worth living through for its own sake? Is the pleasure of contemplating these characters an end in itself?”

Rabindranath Tagore
“Ami Chitrangada, I am the king’s daughter
Not a goddess, nor an ordinary woman
Worshippinge and placing me on a pedestal, that is not me, not me,
Neglecting me and keeping me behind, that is not me, not me,
If you keep me by your side on crisis and in wealth
You will know me truly
I am Chitrangada, the king’s daughter.”
