Personally, I think the passion for an extraordinary life, and the courage to pursue it, is what makes us special.
If you don't know, the thing to do is not to get scared, but to learn.
Books: a beautifully browsable invention that needs no electricity and exists in a readable form no matter what happens.
Don't try to be young. Just open your mind. Stay interested in stuff. There are so many things I won't live long enough to find out about, but I'm still curious about them. You know people who are already saying, 'I'm going to be 30 - oh, what am I going to do?' Well, use that decade! Use them all!
A good book is an event in my life.
Happy reading and writing, Zigzaggers!
