You’re not the first one trying to figure this out!
So many smart people lived before us, each of them uncovered another piece of truth that can help us be better.
We're all standing on the shoulders of the giants that came before us.
Trying to collect some wisdom as I stumble through this life.

“When you grow up, you tend to get told the world is the way it is and your life is just to live your life inside the world. Try not to bash into the walls too much. Try to have a nice family life, have fun, save a little money. That’s a very limited life. Life can be much broader once you discover one simple fact. And that is: Everything around you that you call life was made up by people that were no smarter than you. And you can change it, you can influence it, you can build your own things that other people can use. Once you learn that, you’ll never be the same again.”
