from Steve

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma, which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”

:: Steve Jobs ::

word of the day :: hubris

hubris
[hyoo-bris, hoo-]

-noun
excessive pride or self-confidence; arrogance.

Origin
1880-85; < Greek hýbris insolence

“As both capitalist and communist states—not to mention the technological world—have evolved under the illusion that men purposefully built them, ideological optimism seeps into every niche of our lives. It is made worse by mass culture which feeds our most destructive illusions, fostering the belief that if we’re only justified (and who isn’t?)Mif we only calculate things correctly, if we only do the right thing (and who doesn’t?)Mthen the future must yield the desired results. There must always be a way. And so hubris turns to false certainties, everyone expects to be a winner, and each morning is a mind-blowing surprise.”
~ Stephen Vizinczey ~
Hungarian novelist, critic
