    "Try not to become a man of success, but rather try to become a man of value."
    Albert Einstein

    This is something I think about a lot. At the end of the day success is incredibly motivating and accomplishing your goals and your dreams is something I wanted to do since I was a little kid that's been a driving force through my life. But, through all of that the times I felt happiest, the times I felt most secure, the times where my anxiety and stress were at 0; are the times where I felt like I was being most true to myself. Where I was trying to really become a person of substance. I wasn't looking for something extrinsic. I was focused inward and trying to develope the person Im becoming. That I had some code that I was living by that I was really deciding not just what outwardly success looks like but what does it mean to be a good person? What does it mean to be an effective person? What does it mean to be worthy of trust? And those things at the end of the day, those things are some that that when you invest in finding value in that, that it takes you somewhere amazing!

    And as Bruce lee said, knowledge will give you power but character will give you respect.

    And at the end of the day I can't thing of anything better than that! I can't thing of anything that will keep me company when I'm alone, when there is nothing but silence around. When all I can here is the sounds of my own thoughts. The only thing that is going to bring you and me comfort is respect, is self love, is knowing who you are really and knowing that you are true to that even when no one is looking! And that concept, that notion of having a guiding light, a principle, something by which you steer by that you are always true to and then in your moments of stress, chaos, confusion, of desire. That in your moments of deepest desire that you're still true to that, that all you think about is that North star, being that person you want to be. When you let that be your guiding light, when you stay true to that, nothing can hurt you! Because nothing will be able to make you feel badly about yourself! Because once you know who you are and you're true to it, nothing else matters!

    “Today, the people who make things change, the people who have that knowledge, are the scientists and the technologists, who are the true driving force of humanity. And before you say what about the Beethovens and the Michelangelos? Let me suggest something with which you may disagree violently: that at best, the products of human emotion, art, philosophy, politics, music, literature, are interpretations of the world, that tell you more about the guy who's talking, than about the world he's talking about. Second hand views of the world, made third hand by your interpretation of them.”
    ― James Burke, Connections
