An Autodidact’s Schedule

The best way to learn isn’t by reading, though — it’s through actual doing. The mistake some people make is they just read about something, but it’s when you actually use the knowledge that it becomes real, that you find other problems that you have to solve, that you learn all the things that go along with main idea. If I don’t put something into practice, I don’t really care about learning about it.

Mutual weirdness called Love

Love me forever

We’re all a little weird. And life is a little weird. And when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall into mutually satisfying weirdness — and call it love — true love.

-Robert Fulghum

 

“When people listen, they live in your heart forever.”

Quote

“Empathy is the greatest thing. There’s an expression I love: ‘Let people live in your heart.’ There’s no limit on numbers. They tell the stories, and everyone shares their feelings. When people really listen, they live in your heart forever.”

Mr. Kanamori, from the documentary, Children Full of Life
