❝ All the world is birthday cake, so take a piece, but not too much.
words from George Harrison which I remember when I feel so loathe.
❝ To be intellectually honest, in the first place you have to feel guilty — you have to think there is something unclean about not really knowing — and second, you have to abide that feeling. You have to be un-lazy: re‑read stuff, solve a problem the third time, work something out for yourself, follow a footnote — insist, basically, that close enough is not good enough.
❝ Let silence take you to the core of life.
