    Seth Godin in conversation with Debbie Millman about courage, anxiety, change, creative integrity, and how to dance with the fear. 

    For the [creative person], what’s going on outside is trivial compared to what is going on inside… Don’t try to change the structure of the outside world [hoping that] then you’ll be fine, then you’ll be creative and then you’ll be brave. No. First, figure out how to be creative and brave and courageous, and the outside world will change on your behalf…

    It’s always the same case — it’s always the case of you’re a human, trying to connect to another human. And if you just pick one human that you can change for the better, with work that might not work — that’s what art is.

"Going through life without God is like being an astronaut tumbling out of control in outer space. You grab on to this, but it breaks, and you tumble some more. Every time you lose something that you tried to hold on to— your marriage, your job, your mom— you start tumbling even faster. So you’ve got to stay close. You can’t cut your umbilical cord. But you don’t have to go to church. God is everywhere. God is that blade of grass trying to come up through the concrete. So many people go to church, and leave church, not even realizing that they are the church. You just need to make a determination in your mind that you want to find and believe in the truth."

  5. “This cosmic dance of bursting decadence and withheld permissions twists all our arms collectively. But, if sweetness can win—and it can—then I’ll still be here tomorrow, to high five you, yesterday, my friend. Peace.”  - The Royal Tart Toter

    Such strange, blissful times lately - settlng into a kickass job (a blessing of a job, really), getting to know some choice individuals, making lots and lots and lots of mistakes, all while getting ready for the grad march and trying to cultivate roots. It’s truly been, pardon the pun, an adventure time.

    God, how the lines between feeling like an adult and feeling like a child are skewed. The feeling of being so young, so damn young, lingers over me as I try to mold time - as I try to mold to the vastness of time - as I stop and gape at the expanse of life ahead of me.

  7. In time, all of science will come to be a continuum of description, an explanation of networks, of principles and laws. That’s why you need to not just be training in one specialty, but also acquire breadth in other fields, related to and even distant from your own initial choice. Keep your eyes lifted and your head turning. The search for knowledge is in our genes.

    In science and all its applications, what is crucial is not that technical ability, but it is imagination in all of its applications.

    E.O. Wilson's advice to young scientists, also applicable to just about any field, but most of all to the ethos of education itself. (via explore-blog)
