Bio

"For the past 33 years, I've looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: if today were the last day of my life, would I wanna do what I am about to do today? And whenever the answer has been "No" for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something. Remembering that I'll be dead soon is the most important tool I've ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything, all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarassement or failure, these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking "You have something to lose." You are already naked; there's no reason not to follow your heart. About a year ago, I was diagnosed with cancer. I had a scan at 7.30 in the morning and it clearly showed a tumor on my pancreas. I didn't even know what a pancreas was! The doctors told me this was almost certainly a type of cancer that is incurable and that I should expect to live no longer than 3 to 6 months. My doctor advised me to go home and get my affairs in order, which is doctor's code for "Prepare to die."It means to try and tell your kids everything. You thought you'd have the next ten years to tell them, not just a few months. It means to make sure everything is buttoned up, so that it'd be as easy as possible for your family. It means to say your goodbies." Steve Jobs " -How come you don't write on a computer? -I'm gonna answer your question in return for blessing silence... Look at that machine. I like that you have to write a bit slower on a manual. I like the way it sounds. I like the way that letters bite into the paper. I like that you can feel as a genuine human being doing the work. Hands off." "Dar îmi ziceam că am timp destul: asta e marea tâmpenie a oamenilor, ne spunem mereu că avem timp, că vom face un lucru a doua sau a treia zi, peste un an sau peste două ore. Şi apoi totul moare. Ne pomenim că însoţim nişte sicrie, ceea ce nu ajută prea mult într-o conversaţie." "Mi-am amintit atunci o formulă grecească, fără să mi-o amintesc totuşi prea bine, care zicea ceva despre apa care curge, câteva cuvinte simple care spuneau totul despre viaţă şi, mai ales, dădeau de înţeles că nu putem niciodată să o întoarcem înapoi. Orice am face." "E incredibil cum o rană mică şi neînsemnată poate să-ţi otrăvească viaţa şi să ţi-o scurteze." Philippe Claudel, "Suflete cenuşii" "Puterea femeii! Nu m-am simţit niciodată atât de plină de puteri misterioase! Bărbaţii sunt o glumă. Suntem atât de plăpânde fizic, atât de neajutorate în faţa realităţii. Chiar şi în ziua de azi. Dar suntem mai puternice decât ei. Noi putem îndura cruzimea lor. Ei n-o pot îndura pe-a noastră." (John Fowles, "Colecţionarul")
