A few good quotes:
“I am going to do something radically different; and I am going to do something that scares the crap out of me… and see if that changes my brain chemistry.”
“When you’re a kid, everything is astonishing, everything is new. So your brain is awake and turned on … once your brain establishes a routine, the alertness goes away. The fascination with the way the world works.”
