The best minds of my generation are thinking about how to make people click ads.
What are you investing your talent in?
Is it making this world any better?
Is it having a positive impact on people’s lives?
Wherever you are, whatever you’re doing, your worst enemy already lives inside you: your ego.
We all aspire, then, we succeed or fail in a never-ending cycle, this book is a good reminder to get rid of this unhealthy belief in our own importance in order to get the most of these 3 phases and our lives.
Voy a guardar intacto el recuerdo de este instante porque todo lo que existe ahora mismo nunca volverá a ser igual.
I am going to keep my memory of this moment intact because everything that now exists will never be the same again.
This book was a required read for me when I was in high school and I’ve just read it again. It was good to remember those old days and reconnect with the main character of this story, a young Mexican boy who is dealing with an impossible love and the absurdity of the ruled by adults world that surrounds him.
And, here’s a great song based on this book from one of my favorite bands.
We are stardust brought to life, then empowered by the universe to figure itself out – and we have only just begun.
I’ve been always deeply fascinated with everything that extends beyond our beloved earth out to the universe.
I must say that I had to re read several parts of this book, I forced my little mind in order to grasp some of the magnificent concepts that are presented in this book. It is an introductory book into astrophysics and yet all the chapters are so mind blowing, it’s really hard for your mind to even take a tiny look into the grandiosity of the universe.
I read this review in Goodreads before I bought this book, I found it really funny and I’m agree with it:
Imagine you are standing with your face up and your mouth wide open underneath a waterfall of Skittles.At first, a few Skittles get into your mouth and you can taste them. Awesome, you think. I love Skittles. Then, the Skittles become overwhelming, as more and more try to force themselves in, and millions and millions puddle around your feet, piling up past your knees.
If I were not a software Engineer I would have loved to be an astrophysicist, what I’m left is to continue to be amazed by books like this that present us the immensity of the universe and the tininess of us.
