i don’t know which of the following facts is worst: that my calc professor required us all to buy a book he wrote (tacky), that the last question on every homework assignment is “what part of the reading did you enjoy most” (absolutely none of it; this book is terrible and also about calculus), or that the book itself is full of “how do you do fellow kids”-esque attempts to appeal to The Youth (as when he called thomas edison’s DC power plants an, i quote, “epic fail”)

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people don’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine as children do. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own lights shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
