"I like to flip through old books to see if I can find any handwritten notes. Once I found one with a love note from 1917."

“Once the realization is accepted that even between the closest human beings infinite distances continue, a wonderful living side by side can grow, if they succeed in loving the distance between them which makes it possible for each to see the other whole against the sky.”
— Rainer Maria Rilke
“It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new. But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful. There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.”
—  Alan Cohen

"Build your own dreams, or someone else will hire you to build theirs." - Farrah Gray

I can almost see a light

NEW GRAPHIC for Businessweek. When you search for something on Google, its algorithms will usually respond with suggestions for what it thinks you’re looking for based on other popular searches. It’s a helpful tool, but also a window into our collective psyche. Try Googling “Why” and see what comes up. The cascade of suggestions that Google generates can also feel less like asking for a professional or qualified answer and more like an exercise in Dadaism poetry.

Totally my jam right now. 

“We absolutely must leave room for doubt or there is no progress and there is no learning. There is no learning without having to pose a question. And a question requires doubt. People search for certainty. But there is no certainty. People are terrified — how can you live and not know? It is not odd at all. You only think you know, as a matter of fact. And most of your actions are based on incomplete knowledge and you really don’t know what it is all about, or what the purpose of the world is, or know a great deal of other things. It is possible to live and not know.”

Richard Feynman, born on May 11, 1918, on the role of scientific culture in modern society – timeless, remarkably timely read.

Pair with how ignorance drives science.
