Quote reblogged from Explore with 390 notes

I think all children are philosophers. All children are asking themselves these questions. We make sense of the world by telling ourselves stories. And in particular, we tell ourselves stories to make sense of things that don’t otherwise seem to make sense, that defy understanding.

And one of the big problems is of course death. So we tell ourselves these stories to help us cope with the fear of death.

In a fantastic episode of NPR’s TED Radio Hour exploring fear, philosopher Stephen Cave, author of the excellent Immortality: The Quest to Live Forever and How It Drives Civilization, considers the four stories we tell ourselves when facing the prospect of death.

By far the best meditation on the subject remains Alan Lightman on why we long for immortality in an impermanent universe

Self-control, discipline, resilience," she says. "I got that from my parents. I remember once, I got rejected. I was trying to get a professor job, and I applied to, like, 500 places, and I think I got 500 rejections, and I called my dad and said: ‘I don’t think I can be a professor.’ He said: ‘Wait, how many rejections did you get?’ And I said ‘500’. And he said: ‘You got 500 rejections, and you want to give up? You think that’s a LOT?!’

The Guardian — The truth about the Tiger Mother’s family — Kira Cochrane

Иной раз мучаешься вопросом на тему: пять орехов — это ещё не куча, а семь — уже куча? А шесть орехов — это куча или не куча?! И так хочется какой-то определенности, ну или ориентировки где куча, а где еще нет. И всякий раз радуешься, когда кто-то дает прямой ответ на вопрос. Вот и сейчас.

Эми Чуа, мечтавшая стать профессором разослала 500 (прописью: пятьсот) резюме; не получила положительного ответа и впала в уныние (вряд ли, но будем думать, что все же впала). Позвонила своему отцу, который ответил: “Ты получила 500 (прописью: пятьсот) отказов, и ты думаешь, что это куча много?”

Так, что 500 отказов на ваш запрос — это еще не куча. Пишите дальше. Правда, для продолжения у вас уже должны быть навыки: самодисциплины, самоконтроля, и что-то вроде несгибаемости. Впрочем, если у вас их не было, то к получению ответа на ваше пятьсот первое отосланное резюме они уже должны будут появиться.

I don’t believe in influence. I think that in order to be an artist, you have to move. When you stop moving, then you’re no longer an artist. And if you move from somebody else’s position, you simply cannot know the next step. I think that everyone is on his own line. I think that after you’ve made one step, the next step reveals itself.

Try not to compromise. So many people don’t do what they really want in their hearts because they feel like they’re not good enough, or they’re not smart enough, or they’re not talented enough… anything. And that doesn’t matter. In order for you to live a remarkable life — in order for you to live a life that is fulfilling — you need to be able to go after what you want. And if you don’t, you’re not going to achieve it — ever.
— On Humble Pied, Debbie Millman shares three pieces of wisdom to guide the way to a remarkable life. Dive deeper with her timelessly wonderful illustrated-essay-turned-commencement-address on courage and the creative life. (via explore-blog)

Meditate.
Live purely.
Quiet the mind.
Do your work with mastery.
Like the moon, come out
from behind the clouds!
Shine.

you are not too old
and it is not too late
to dive into your increasing depths
where life calmly gives out
it’s own secret
