Wasted Wisdom

21 Sep

People say youth is wasted on the young. I disagree. I believe wisdom is wasted on the old. All you can do is part with it.

Anonymous Achievement

Achievement is often anonymous. Some of the greatest things have been done by people you have never heard of, quietly dedicating their lives to improving your own.

Sooner or later, we all go through a crucible... Most believe there are two types of people who go in to a crucible; the ones who grow stronger from the experience and survive it, and the ones who die. But there is a third type. The ones who learn to love the fire and choose to stay in their crucible because its easier to embrace the pain when its all you know anymore.

Shallow Political Pool

14 Oct

I do think we lose people who don't want to put themselves through this unendurable process, or their families through it. I think we drum good people out of politics who are defined by the single worst thing they've ever done as opposed to the context of their public lives. And I think we make it much, much easier for people who have no business holding office to enter the process. Because when you're not talking about ideas and world views, and agendas, when you're talking about character and personality it makes it very easy for someone to float through the process without ever having to explain themselves or demonstrate what they know.

HBO’s Silicon Valley has far surpassed my expectations, and this “math” scene is one of the finest bits of television I’ve seen in quite a while.
