Quote by J.K. Rowling
When you have seen as much of life as I have, you will not underestimate the power of obsessive love.
This quote suggests that someone who has experienced various aspects of life realizes the immense strength that comes with obsessive love. It implies that through witnessing and experiencing different things in life, one comes to recognize and appreciate the intense power that love with a heightened level of obsession possesses. It emphasizes that this understanding only comes with a deep understanding of life's complexities and diverse encounters.
There is something servile in the habit of seeking after a law which we may obey. We may study the laws of matter at and for our convenience, but a successful life knows no law. It is an unfortunate discovery certainly, that of a law which binds us where we did not know before that we were bound. Live free, child of the mist--and with respect to knowledge we are all children of the mist. The man who takes the liberty to live is superior to all the laws, by virtue of his relation to the lawmaker. That is active duty, says the Vishnu Purana, which is not for our bondage; that is knowledge which is for our liberation: all other duty is good only unto weariness; all other knowledge is only the cleverness of an artist.http://www.gutenberg.org/dirs/etext97/wlkng10.txt
I review novels to make money, because it is easier for a sluggard to write an article a fortnight than a book a year, because the writer is soothed by the opiate of action, the crank by posing as a good journalist, and having an air hole. I dislike it. I do it and I am always resolving to give it up.
IQ is a commodity, data is a commodity. I'm far more interested in watching people interact at a restaurant with their smartphone. We can all read 'Tech Crunch,' 'Ad Age.' I would rather be living in the trenches. I would rather be going to Whole Foods in Columbus Circle to watch people shop with their smartphones.
