That was my childhood. I grew up with the monks, studying Sanskrit and meditating for hours in the morning and hours in the evening, and going once a day to beg for food.
Without education, you are not going anywhere in this world.
I’m not a good writer, and I don’t care. Unfortunately, after I left college, I didn’t have time much for literature. I wish I did. Most of the time I read documents, and that’s not going to help your writing. But I’m a very logical writer, and you can’t get out of me. Once I’ve nailed you, you’re finished.
I think the market is always going to be around. The goal is not to say, let’s get rid of the market, because the market does render a huge number of services, and I don’t want to have a fight about the price of something every time I buy a book or a bottle of water.

If we ignore our death, we end up just going around completely oblivious to why we do the things we do!
If you work hard at anything, you’re going to experience some success. And the greatest gift is when you have something you really love to do and you can integrate that into your work life. I feel like it’s a real privilege that I get to do something that is good for my community and good for the world. But it’s also pleasurable for me.
The only thing that’s going to free Huey is gun powder.
