Style: it's not all about wealth.

Because so much brilliance is already out there, and life is more fun if it's a treasure hunt.

Whoever undertakes to set himself up as a judge of Truth and Knowledge is shipwrecked by the laughter of the gods.

Benten is the Japanese goddess of love, beauty, eloquence, wisdom, arts and music, knowledge, good fortune, and water.  She is the protectress of children and the patroness of geishas, dancers, and musicians.  Originally she was a sea goddess or water goddess, on whose image many local deities near lakes were based.

Basically, I realized I was living in that awful stage of life between twenty-six and thirty-seven known as stupidity. It’s when you don’t know anything, not even as much as you did when you were younger, and you don’t even have a philosophy about all the things you don’t know, the way you did when you were twenty or would again when you were thirty-eight.
