On Love and Wealth

"The search for love and the search for wealth are always the two best stories. But while a love story is timeless, the story of a quest for wealth, given enough time, will always seem like the vain pursuit of a mirage"

Finding Common Ground

It's no small feat to attempt to understand something rather than get infuriated by it. But, indeed I as often as possible try to start from the humanist perspective that nobody wakes up in the morning and decides to be a douche bag. That's my starting point.
