What he thinks she thinks of him

I’ve just finished reading yesterday  “The social Animal” book by Elliot Aronson. It is really a very good book. It’s an encyclopedia for modern psychology. Covering a very wide range of experiences. I really really enjoy it. When I finished the book, I felt like I don’t need to read anything anymore about Social Psychology! (more…)

La société dans laquelle nous sommes nés repose sur l’égoïsme. Les sociologues nomment cela l’individualisme, alors qu’il y a un mot plus simple: nous vivons dans la société de la solitude. Il n’y a plus de familles, plus de villages, plus de Dieu. Nos ainés nous ont délivrés de toutes ces oppressions et à la place ils ont allumé la télévision.

~Frédéric Beighbeder – L’amour dure trois ans.

One of my favorite quote of Steve Jobs

I’ve been making a list of the things they don’t teach you at school:

  • They don’t teach you how to love somebody.
  • They don’t teach you how to be famous.
  • They don’t teach you how to be rich or how to be poor.
  • They don’t teach you how to walk away from someone you don’t love any longer.
  • They don’t teach you how to know what’s going on in someone else’s mind.
  • They don’t teach you what to say to someone who’s dying.
  • They don’t teach you anything worth knowing. (Neil Gaiman)

In this post, i have presented the butterfly effect. Here I will show some practical examples.

This post extends the ideas discussing security and risks here.

To love is to risk not being loved in return. To hope is to risk pain. To try is to risk failure, but risk must be taken because the greatest hazard in life is to risk nothing.

Last friday, I saw the movie “Black swan” and since then I was thinking about it almost continuously.

The film is about a ballerina in a ballet company who has been chosen to lead the new production of the company: “Swan lake” which is a story about a virginal girl, pure and sweet, trapped in the body of a white swan. (more…)
