Retweeted by Rita J. King@pmarca Same: "...who go through life never expecting to be happy." I think it helped me learn to imagine a radical different future too.
@pmarca I was literally once a cub reporter who said I need to write the Great American Novel before I can really file this story.@brainpicker I stopped what I was doing and read "The Friend." What can I say, @MatthewTeague, that won't sound empty in so few characters.Investing in women is a smart move. http://t.co/weokx0CbybGreat to have you join us in supporting @WeizmannInst and creating the future, @jasonsilva! https://t.co/1Iq4vo0i25@JPBarlow hope you feel better soon
