Looking Into Your Eyes. And Calling Your Bluff - Siddha Performance
“These people listen and nod their heads but they don’t Act upon the advice. That is the problem.”

...

Because the vast majority of men and women are not interested in any sincere journey toward Everest. They’re interested in being Entertained by stories about Everest.

...

As for Vipassana, I will gladly attend it. On one condition.

If those who exit the Vipassana hall are equanimous, regardless of the circumstance, I will attend.

The Innocent Warrior - Siddha Performance
The most pervasive idea throughout the world is the idea that “if you do This, you will get That.”

If you buy into this idea, then why don’t you go to the supermarket tomorrow, pay for your groceries and tell the cashier that months or years into the future, when they get around to it, they can deliver your groceries to you.

...

The only God you will ever have is You! And instead of exploring him, you abandon him in search of one who lives in the stars that are (conveniently) millions of miles away.

...

An innocent journey is one that is walked with the heart and without the mind.

The heart says Go There! And the mind says What if something happens along the way?

Giving and Taking Criticism — Chappell Ellison
I firmly believe you can be a critic while being kind and open-hearted.

I don’t even care if that sounds naive.

Most people think the number one goal of a critic is to judge whether work is good or bad.

They are wrong. #imo

The number one goal of a critic should be to make things better. That’s it. None of this binary good/bad stuff. Lots of people would disagree with me on this.

Ta-Nehisi Coates: Kanye West in the Age of Donald Trump - The Atlantic
It would be nice if those who sought to use their talents as entrée into another realm would do so with the same care which they took in their craft.

Michael Jackson did not just destroy his own face, but endorsed the destruction of all those made in similar fashion.

I'd take a developer (or even non-developer!) with deep knowledge acquisition and problem solving skills over a programmer with a smorgasbord of shallow experiences any day.

Shtetl-Optimized » Blog Archive » I will not log in to your website
Today, I’m proud to announce a new boycott, less politically important but equally consequential for my quality of life, and to recommend it to all of my friends.  Namely: as long as the world gives me any choice in the matter, I will never again struggle to log in to any organization’s website.  I’ll continue to devote a huge fraction of my waking hours to fielding questions from all sorts of people on the Internet, and I’ll do it cheerfully and free of charge.  All I ask is that, if you have a question, or a document you want me to read, you email it!  Or leave a blog comment, or stop by in person, or whatever—but in any case, don’t make me log in to anything other than Gmail or Facebook or WordPress or a few other sites that remain navigable by a senile 35-year-old who’s increasingly fixed in his ways.  Even Google Docs and Dropbox are pushing it: I’ll give up (on principle) at the first sight of any login issue, and ask for just a regular URL or an attachment.

Tim Cook on Why He Met With Donald Trump
“Personally, I’ve never found being on the sideline a successful place to be,” writes Cook.

“The way that you influence these issues is to be in the arena. So whether it’s in this country, or the European Union, or in China or South America, we engage. And we engage when we agree and we engage when we disagree. I think it’s very important to do that because you don’t change things by just yelling. You change things by showing everyone why your way is the best. In many ways, it’s a debate of ideas.”
