Two quotes that struck with me when I read the book
  1. The Rematch - slow and steady wins the race, till truth and talent claim their place.
    For me, this is the distinction between celebrities and educated actors and talented singers. I apply this to my life by reminding myself that acquiring important skills take time, but they will ultimately lead the way. There are just very few short cuts we can take in life.
  2. Dark Matter - I think it's better to not know certain things. It gives the world an extra bit of mystery, which is important to us human beings.
    When I was applying to graduate schools I was very anxious because their decision would change my life. I kept saying to myself, "it's OK to not know everything, that's what keeps life interesting " It was hard to take a step back, but I just had to trust God and keep moving forward.
