"Your life choices aren’t just about what you want to do; they’re about who you want to be."
"The more noticeable status disparities are, the more concerned with status people become, and the differences between the haves and have-nots have been extremely pronounced during the economic recession of recent years."
"If we're all going to be disagreeing more, we should be careful to do it well. What does it mean to disagree well? Most readers can tell the difference between mere name-calling and a carefully reasoned refutation, but I think it would help to put names on the intermediate stages."
"Leverage is everywhere. You felt it as a kid shooting peas across the room with a spoon. Or when you first used a calculator and wondered why your teachers made you do long division by hand for 3 years."
"Creating a habit of note-taking can significantly improve your thinking and memory. Many of us instinctively understand this, but it can be hard to know where to start."
