A THREAD on timeless quotes by Jean Paul Sartre:


If you're lonely when you're alone, you're in bad company.

Man is condemned to be free; because once thrown into the world, he is responsible for everything he does.

It is up to you to give life a meaning.

When the rich wage war it's the poor who die.

Everything has been figured out, except how to live.

All that I know about my life, it seems, I have learned in books.

It is therefore senseless to think of complaining since nothing foreign has decided what we feel, what we live, or what we are.

I suppose it is out of laziness that the world is the same day after day.

Today it seemed to want to change.

I had found my religion: nothing seemed more important to me than a book.

I saw the library as a temple.

To think new thoughts you have to break the bones in your head.

To know what life is worth you have to risk it once in a while.

A THREAD on timeless quotes by Socrates:


Employ your time in improving yourself by other men's writings so that you shall come easily by what others have labored hard for. Image

Intelligent individuals learn from every thing and every one; average people, from their experiences.

The stupid already have all the answers.

True wisdom comes to each of us when we realize how little we understand about life, ourselves, and the world around us.

A THREAD on timeless quotes by Arthur Schopenhauer:


Our civilized world is nothing but a great masquerade. You encounter knights, parsons, soldiers, doctors, lawyers, priests, philosophers and a thousand more: but they are not what they appear - they are merely...
masks... Usually, as I say, there is nothing but industrialists, businessmen and speculators concealed behind all these masks.

A man can be himself only so long as he is alone; and if he does not love solitude, he will not love freedom; for it is only when he is alone that he is really free.

A THREAD on timeless quotes by Benjamin Franklin giving a glimpse on his perspective on life:


Many people die at twenty five and aren't buried until they are seventy five.

Instead of cursing the darkness, light a candle.

An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest.

A THREAD on key ideas from the book "21 Lessons for the 21st Century" by @harari_yuval:


The best advice I can give a fifteen-year-old stuck in an outdated school somewhere in Mexico, India, or Alabama is: don’t rely on the adults too much. Most of them mean well, but...
...they just don’t understand the world. In the past, it was a relatively safe bet to follow the adults, because they knew the world quite well, and the world changed slowly. But 21st century is going to be different. Because of the increasing pace of change, you can never...
... be certain whether what the adults are telling you is timeless wisdom or outdated bias.

A THREAD on key ideas from the book "Thinking, Fast and Slow" by Daniel Kahneman:


The test of learning psychology is whether your understanding of situations you encounter has changed, not whether you have learned a new fact.

It is much easier to strive for perfection when you are never bored.

We know that people can maintain an unshakable faith in any proposition, however absurd, when they are sustained by a community of like-minded believers.

A THREAD on key ideas from the book "Homo Deus: A History of Tomorrow" by @harari_yuval :


Religion is a deal, whereas spirituality is a journey.

Religion cannot be equated with superstition, because most people are unlikely to call their cherished beliefs ‘superstitions’.

We always believe in ‘the truth’.

It’s only other people who believe in superstitions.

Algorithm’ is arguably the single most important concept in our world.

If we want to understand our life and our future, we should make every effort to understand what an algorithm is, and how algorithms are connected with emotions.
