There’s a new website that I don’t quite understand, but I think I love. It’s called Explore, and it’s “a discovery engine for meaningful knowledge, fueled by cross-disciplinary curiosity.” Edited by Maria Popova for Coursekit.
I was in as soon as I saw this quote:
“The problem, often not discovered until late in life, is that when you look for things in life like love, meaning, motivation, it implies they are sitting behind a tree or under a rock. The most successful people in life recognize, that in life they create their own love, they manufacture their own meaning, they generate their own motivation.
For me, I am driven by two main philosophies, know more today about the world than I knew yesterday. And lessen the suffering of others. You’d be surprised how far that gets you.”
