So I've got a bunch of stuff I've been collecting from random places lately, that I keep wanting to post, and now's the perfect time for that.
To start us off, probably the best thing I've read all year, from the genius that is Neil de Grasse Tyson:
“The problem, often not discovered until late in life, is that when you look for things in life like love, meaning, motivation, it implies they are sitting behind a tree or under a rock. The most successful people in life recognize, that in life they create their own love, they manufacture their own meaning, they generate their own motivation.For me, I am driven by two main philosophies, know more today about the world than I knew yesterday. And lessen the suffering of others. You'd be surprised how far that gets you.”
