Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind

“The pursuit of an easier life resulted in much hardship, and not for the last time. It happens to us today. How many young college graduates have taken demanding jobs in high-powered firms, vowing that they will work hard to earn money that will enable them to retire and pursue their real interests when they are thirty-five? But by the time they reach that age, they have large mortgages, children to school, houses in the suburbs that necessitate at least two cars per family, and a sense that life is not worth living without really good wine and expensive holidays abroad. What are they supposed to do, go back to digging up roots? No, they double their efforts and keep slaving away.”

Starting Strength: Basic Barbell Training

“Physical strength is the most important thing in life. This is true whether we want it to be or not.

Our strength, more than any other thing we possess, still determines the quality and the quantity of our time here in these bodies.”

The Great Railway Bazaar by Paul Theroux

“The travel book was a bore. A bore wrote it and bores read it. It annoyed me that a traveller hid his or her moments or desperation or fear or lust. Or the time he or she screamed at the taxi driver, or mocked the folk dancers. And what did they eat, what books did they read to kill time, and what were the toilets like? I had done enough traveling to know that half of travel was delay or nuisance – buses breaking down, hotel clerks being rude, market peddlers being rapacious. The truth of travel was interesting and off-key, and few people ever wrote about it.”

ReWork: Change the Way You Work Forever

“What you do is what matters, not what you think or say or plan.”

Meditations by Marcus Aurelius

“Yes, keep on degrading yourself, soul. But soon your chance at dignity will be gone. Everyone gets one life. Yours is almost used up, and instead of treating yourself with respect, you have entrusted your own happiness to the souls of others.”
