490. Quote: Arthur Schopenhauer on Art

“Treat a work of art like a prince. Let it speak to you first.”

—Arthur Schopenhauer

440. Well Spent

You should spend more time taming your tongue than taming your hair; more time training your thoughts than training with weights; more time taking in ideas than spelling out your own; more time seeking truth than gathering verbal ammunition; more time investing in others than seeking your fame; more time arguing for justice than arguing your case.

368. We

The way your married friends use we versus I will tell you everything about how they view their partnership and how invested they are.

And don’t believe a guy who says he can’t use we. He sure does for his favorite team.

352. Communication

Don’t speak louder to a blind person. The only change in communication you should make is to someone who is hard of hearing, with whom you may speak louder, or to a child, with whom you should speak more simply.

349. Truth Plus

Speaking the truth without compassion, love, or grace is just being rude.
