lesson

A Quote by Daniel Everett on life, language, amazon, tribe, tribal, lesson, culture, perception, objectivity, and science

As a scientist, objectivity is one of my most deeply held values. If we could just try harder, I once thought, surely we could each see the world as others see it and learn to respect one another's views more readily. But I learned from the Pirahas, our expectations, our culture, and our experiences can render even perceptions of the environment nearly incommensurable cross-culturally.

A Quote by Daniel Everett on life, language, amazon, tribe, tribal, and lesson

I've learned so much from the Pirahas over the years. But this is perhaps my favorite lesson. Sure, life is hard and there is plenty of danger. And it might make us lose some sleep from time to time. But enjoy it. Life goes on.

A Quote by Matthew Good on matt, matt good, matthew good, entiry, silence, silent, wonder, force, patient, lesson, teach, grasp, and immense

...there is something larger that’s looming out there. A force that remains patient and silent. An entity that waits to teach a lesson that we have yet to grasp. It is much better to just lie there and let it roll over you like some immense army of unquestionable wonder.

A Quote by Sri Sri Ravi Shankar on love, blame, and lesson

To love someone whom you like is insignificant.

To love someone because they love you is of no consequence.

To love someone whom you do not like means you have learned a lesson in life.

To love someone who blames you for no reason shows that you have learned the art of living.
