you made that yourself?

Ina Garten:

I think the reason people use cookbooks is it gives them the tools to do something, to put something on the table and have everybody say, ‘You made that yourself?'”


it can’t be helped

the gestalt prayer:

I do my thing and you do your thing.
I am not in this world to live up to your expectations,
And you are not in this world to live up to mine.
You are you, and I am I,
and if by chance we find each other, it’s beautiful. 
If not, it can’t be helped.

100–0–100 investment philosophy

josh wolfe:

We even have an investment philosophy that, again, in hindsight, I’ve called this now 100–0–100. It’s this mix of ambition and arrogance and intellectual humility. The arrogant part is the 100. I am 100% certain that Lux will be investing in the most cutting-edge, crazy things that you can imagine in the next two years. The 0 part is the intellectual humility. I have no idea what those things will be. None. The next 100 is the ambition and the confidence, which is, I know with near 100% certainty where we will find those things, and it’s at the edge of our already cutting-edge companies.
