The Egg

A wonderful short story from Andy Weir, The Egg, all summed up in this quote:

“Every time you victimized someone,” I said, “you were victimizing yourself. Every act of kindness you’ve done, you’ve done to yourself. Every happy and sad moment ever experienced by any human was, or will be, experienced by you.”

In less than 5 minutes you can be enlightened. A very real Golden Rule.

Say Something

Just a little note of something that I need to remember:

“If people are choosing between saying something and saying nothing, they’re almost always better off saying something.”
Emily McDowell via The Art of Non-Conformity.

Emily has created around 2,000 cards that aren’t full of platitudes, and realise that there isn’t always a good way to say hard things.

No good card

Technicolor

“If you are going to live your life in Technicolor, then you have to expect some spilled paint.” Air Commodore John Oddie (Retd.)

Lucky

“How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard”
AA Milne – Winnie the Pooh

Unprovable …

A quick follow-up to my Science and Religion post, this time coming from the atheist side.

“That which can be asserted without evidence, can be dismissed without evidence.” ? Christopher Hitchens

Christopher Hitchens

This statement is known as Hitchens’ Razor; the burden of proof lies with the person making the claim. Mr Hitchens used it first to criticise the beatification of Mother Theresa in 2003.
