I've written hundreds of thoughts that have never been quoted, but these eight I like especially.
"We lack resolve and blame fate, mistaking the drift for the tides."
"The most difficult requirement of becoming knowledgable is that you must give up certainty."
"You have a claim on life, and at some point life will offer you a settlement. Don't take it."
"If I were convinced that God is an illusion, I would worship the illusionist."
"It is not so much that all human beings are the same as that our differences are so similar."
"There's a limit to how much you can change to be liked for who you really are."
"No one ever became a scintillating conversationalist who had the option of just standing there, looking great."
"Whenever I go to the ocean, the tide seems to come in when I want it to go out, the sort of luck that has dogged me all my life."
