To get to the other side
"You know, there’s about 400 different parts of the brain which seem to have different functions. Nobody knows how most of them work in detail, but we do know that there’re lots of different things in there. And they don’t always work together. I like Freud’s theory that most of them are cancelling each other out. And so if you think of yourself as a sort of city with a hundred resources, then, when you’re afraid, for example, you may discard your long-range goals, but you may think deeply and focus on exactly how to achieve that particular goal. You throw everything else away. You become a monomaniac — all you care about is not stepping out on that platform. And when you’re hungry, food becomes more attractive, and so forth. So I see emotions as highly evolved subsets of your capability. Emotion is not something added to thought. An emotional state is what you get when you remove 100 or 200 of your normally available resources.”
- Albert Einstein
“Like, if you don’t have an obvious passion, forget about it. Follow your curiosity because passion is sort of a tower of flame that is not always accessible. And curiosity is something that anybody can access any day. Your curiosity may lead you to your passion or may it not. It may have been for, air quotes, nothing, in which case all you’ve done your entire life is spend your existence in pursuit of the things that made you feel curious and inspired and that should be good enough. Like, if you get to do that, that’s a wonderful way to spend your time here.”
