“There is a certain indolence in us, a wish not to be disturbed, which tempts us
to think that when things are quiet, all is well. Subconsciously, we tend to
give the preference to 'social peace,' though it be only apparent, because our
lives and possessions seem then secure. Actually, human beings acquiesce too
easily in evil conditions; they rebel far too little and too seldom. There is
nothing noble about acquiescence in a cramped life or mere submission to
superior force.
” — A. J. Muste

“[T]he importance of social networks has a counterintuitive consequence for the
notion of individual freedom. Whatever we might like think, we are never
entirely free, nor would we want to be. The very ties that give our lives
meaning also constrain us, and it is precisely by constraining us that they give
us meaning.”

“Dude go get some work. If you are tech savvy then put yourself out there. I
have less than a year of programming experience and I turn down more work than I
take on. I don't even market myself beyond an odesk profile and a blog/resume.
It is really that easy, but if you just sit there and feel sorry for yourself,
you'll be in the same spot in a year. Go send quotes for 20 feelance gigs in the
next week. Work for 15/hr if you have to... in a few months that will be 50/hr
and more work than you can handle.” — andyjbas

".... when ideas are neglected by those who ought to attend to them—that is
to say, those who have been trained to think critically about ideas—they
sometimes acquire an unchecked momentum and an irresistible power ...."

To be Spiritual is to Love Everybody,”

“Should we be telling kids that,
because they're kids,
they shouldn't try to exceed their grasp?
Or should we be telling them instead
that they need to reach high if they're to grow?”
—Enomoto Yooji, taken from dejiko's node here

"You know, as usual--I always tell people--to do physics,
you first think really hard about what you wanna do, and
then you blindly just go ahead with the equations and see
where they lead.
" -- Leonard Susskind in a lecture
