I love that moment of bafflement when a person is looking at you and thinking “what the?” It usually ends in either awkward or full laughter.
If nervous or stressed about doing something, say to yourself “I’ll be dead soon” and do it anyway.
I think psychopaths don’t understand that threats have no effect on people who are truly pissed off. There is no room for fear when a person is angered, only destruction.
An empowered society creates and innovates. Empowered authoritarians corrupt and suffocate.
