Sometimes, when you’re feeling helpless, the secret is to help someone else.
Saints become martyrs before they get to be heroes.

Carl Icahn, in The Secret IRS Files by ProPublica:
There’s a reason it’s called income tax. The reason is if, if you’re a poor person, a rich person, if you are Apple – if you have no income, you don’t pay taxes.
The government sends you the tax form with all the info already there and you just spend like 15-20 mins double checking to make sure it’s right and voilà, done.

You listen to the people that know what to do and let them help you. That’s it.
Because, the more you blow people off, the less they’ll be there for you when you really need them. And, then, you’ll be alone.

As always, when it came to speaking and attempting to engage another’s affections, circumstances doomed me to striving and anxiety.
I speak when there’s something to say and expect to be listened to. Some people speak as a performance and don’t understand why others don’t perform the same way. When there’s constant talking, information is not exchanged because talking just becomes constant empty noise.
True friends sit in silence. Small talk is for both: Strangers and con men.

He knew he needed to do a better job of navigating the world, but he didn’t know how.
He’d had to make his way alone, and no one ever makes it alone.
Pain is part of life. It doesn’t stop when you go. You just pass it on to those you’ve left behind.

Each heart knows its own bitterness, and no one else can share its joy.
Being kind is fundamentally about taking responsibility for your impact on the people around you. It requires you be mindful of their feelings and considerate of the way your presence affects them.

They took everything about me and put it into a computer where they created a model of my mind. Yes! Using that model, they managed to generate every thought I could possibly have in the next ten years, which they then filtered through a probability matrix of some kind… to determine everything I was gonna do in that period.
When a counting algorithm gets perfected, when the car counter can accurately pick up the cars and leave out the port-a-potties and dumpsters, it can help answer even bigger questions about a given place: the degree of urbanization, the level of gas demand, the fluctuations in population.
I find the whole idea a kind of thief of life. That people should waste hours huddled around a wooden box, listening to someone talking at them, burbling inanities from somewhere else.
For, as all true celebrities discover, the media image feeds parasitically on human energy, starving them and removing them, slowly, from the realm of the living.

We tend to judge most heavily those who we know the least. The richer or more famous, the less we know them.

I’ve been waiting half my life for you to wake up and love me. Having loved you for half a lifetime, I realized when you left, that I had made a bad choice doing that.
You know, world’s full of lonely people afraid to make the first move.
