There was a post on BuzzFeed where people choose the most heart wrenching quotes from their favorite fantasy novels. This one shattered my heart 😥

And Percy was shaking his brother, and Ron was kneeling beside them, and Fred’s eyes stared without seeing, the ghost of his last laugh still etched upon his face.”
– J.K.Rowling, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
Why did she have to go and kill him?! *sobs*
People, I’m not glaring. This is just the way my face looks. It’s my neutral expression, I’m not mad at you. There is even a book that says so:
“There is a characteristic INTJ expression which has become popularly termed “the death glare.” This facial expression is actually not a glare, but the INTJ’s neutral face.
-Anna Moss, The Secret Lives of INTJs
“We die the day we lose the will to go on. We die the day we stop caring about life.”
– J.M.Darhower, Sempre: Redemption

As you must have noticed by now, I love smart people. Beautiful minds strongly attract and amaze me. Hence, a book about Elon Musk, no less, is enough to make me lose myself for hours in his incredible, beautiful and mind boggling story.
My brother and I share a strong interest for success stories, as well as electric cars and anything rockets, really!, so we have been listening to this audio book while in the car for the past couple of weeks. We totally love it!
Elon Musk, I believe, might be the smartest man on the planet. If I were to put it into words, I’d say that his recipe for success is:
vast knowledge (books!) + heroic will power + a loyal team of geeks who do not know that what they are trying to achieve is borderline impossible.
This book made me feel small and guilty for using the planet’s resources without doing anything to make it a better place.
I recommend this book for all. Entrepreneurs especially.
“When your rage is choking you, it is best to say nothing.”
– Octavia E. Butler, Fledgling
She stood up, shaking off the stiffness in her limbs. She’s been waiting for quite a while in that attitude.
On the elevated rocks around her, nobody is left. The wind carried them all away leaving nothing but dust and silence in its wake.
Opening her arms to the wind, she stood, in a supplicating manner, waiting for her turn.
Her feet hurt. her eyes stung. her arms burned.
But she wouldn’t budge.
Take me, too! why did you take everyone but me!
After what felt like a million years, a strong gust of wind finally lifted her off her feet, and into the storm.
For she’d rather brave a hundred storms than be the only constant for the rest of her life.
Bring it, storm!
