Start Your Week with Some Brain Food

On learning:

“The worst thing you can ever do is think that you know enough. Never stop learning. Ever.” – Arnold Schwarzenegger

“Investing in yourself is the most important investment you’ll ever make in your life…There’s no financial investment that’ll ever match it.” – Warren Buffett

On thinking for yourself:

“People have to learn that consensus is a huge problem…consensus is how we bully people into pretending that there’s nothing to see.” – Eric Weinstein

“Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it’s time to pause and reflect.” – Mark Twain

On testing what you believe:

“We can live in deceit and illusion until one day we hit the wall of reality. When our false beliefs collide with reality, we then have a choice: Will we live according to knowledge — true belief justified by good evidence? Or will we settle for illusion?” – Lael Arrington

On academic freedom:

“The university is not a safe space…it is a place to be confronted by horrible ideas…if you want to be safe, stay home with your mom…don’t come to university if you want to be safe. If the university is going to make you safe, then it ceases to be a university.” – Jordan Peterson
