What would happen if you fired light into a bottle and could film it at 1,000,000,000,000 frames per second? If you slow it down by a factor of 10 billion you can watch it. It’s incredible.

Do you watch TEDTalks?? You probably should if you like learning.

To love. To be loved. To never forget your own insignificance. To never get used to the unspeakable violence and the vulgar disparity of life around you. To seek joy in the saddest places. To pursue beauty to its lair. To never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple. To respect strength, never power. Above all, to watch. To try and understand. To never look away. And never, never, to forget.
