1. I've been making a list of the things they don't teach you at school.
They don't teach you how to love somebody.
They don't teach you how to be famous.
They don't teach you how to be rich or how to be poor.
They don't teach you how to walk away from someone you don't love any longer.
They don't teach you how to know what's going on in someone else's mind.
They don't teach you what to say to someone who's dying.
They don't teach you anything worth knowing.
2. When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love have always won.
There have been tyrants and murderers, and for a time, they can seem invincible, but in the end, they always fall. Think of it--always.
3. Above all, don't lie to yourself.
The man who lies to himself and listens to his own lie comes to a point that he cannot distinguish the truth within him, or around him, and so loses all respect for himself and for others.
And having no respect he ceases to love.
4. They say a person needs just three things to be truly happy in this world:

9. If the world were merely seductive, that would be easy. If it were merely challenging, that would be no problem.
But I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world.
This makes it hard to plan the day.
10. Never memorize something that you can look up.
11. Some humans would do anything to see if it was possible to do it.
If you put a large switch in some cave somewhere, with a sign on it saying 'End-of-the-World Switch. PLEASE DO NOT TOUCH', the paint wouldn't even have time to dry.
12. Luck has a habit of favoring those who don't depend on it.
13. Never take help of tears to show your emotions, and never take help of words to show your anger.
14. Opportunity favors prepared mind.
15. Each generation wants new symbols, new people, new names. They want to divorce themselves from their predecessors.
16. The most important kind of freedom is to be what you really are.
You trade in your reality for a role.
You give up your ability to feel, and in exchange, put on a mask.
17. Whoever controls the media, controls the mind.
18. If you can't explain it SIMPLY, you don’t understand it well enough.
19. Life’s too short to be somebody else.
20. Some people see things that are and ask, Why?
Some people dream of things that never were and ask, Why not?
Some people have to go to work and don't have time for all that.
21. The big question of our time is not Can it be built? but Should it be built?
22. Stop focusing on dumb shit.
Don’t be afraid to break things.
Don’t be romantic.
Don’t take the time to breathe.
Don’t aim for perfect.
And whatever you do, keep moving.
Reread this a few times . . .
