  • Felix shared from The 4-Hour Work Week: Escape the 9-5, Live Anywhere and Join the New Rich by Timothy Ferriss
    I am not interested in picking up crumbs of compassion thrown from the table of someone who considers himself my master. I want the full menu of rights. —BISHOP DESMOND TUTU, South African cleric and activist
    Note: Now this is a good quote for us. #umbrellarevolution #縮骨遮革命
  • Felix shared from The Art of Learning: A Journey in the Pursuit of Excellence by Josh Waitzkin
    The learning principle is to plunge into the detailed mystery of the micro in order to understand what makes the macro tick.
    Note: Such a true statement. Sadly, most people don't understand the need to drill deep into issues and skills to learn properly.
  • Felix shared from The 4-Hour Chef: The Simple Path to Cooking Like a Pro, Learning Anything, and Living the Good Life by Timothy Ferriss
    “It is a little like developing the habit of stealing the test from your teacher’s desk instead of learning how to do the math. You may pass the test, but you learn absolutely nothing—and, most critically, you don’t gain an appreciation for the value or beauty of learning itself.”
    Note: Josh Waitzkin on learning a skill versus practicing with recipes. Very fundamental rule on learning to improvise.
  • Felix shared from Long After Midnight at the Nino Bien: A Yanqui's Missteps in Argentina by Brian Winter
    “Fall in love, fall in love. That’s my only advice. It can be with a girl, or with the music, or with the dance. It doesn’t matter. But, whatever you do, fall in love. And, if you do this, then the tango, with all the bullshit that you’ll go through along the way, will have been worth it for you.”
    Note: On the eve of my third year of tango, I guess this view sums up my feelings.
  • Felix shared from Daring Greatly: How the Courage to Be Vulnerable Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent, and Lead by Brené Brown
    Because true belonging only happens when we present our authentic, imperfect selves to the world, our sense of belonging can never be greater than our level of self-acceptance.
