Reviews of : The Bed of Procrustes by Nassim Nicholas Taleb PDF Book
Inside this Book – You cannot express the holy in terms made for the profane, but you can discuss the profane in terms made for the holy. – Atheism (materialism) means treating the dead as if they were unborn. I won’t. By accepting the sacred, you reinvent religion. – If you can’t spontaneously detect (without analyzing) the difference between sacred and profane, you’ll never know what religion means. You will also never figure out what we commonly call art. You will never understand anything. – People used to wear ordinary clothes weekdays and formal attire on Sunday. Today it is the exact reverse. – To mark a separation between holy and profane, I take a ritual bath after any contact, or correspondence (even emails), with consultants, economists, Harvard Business School professors, journalists, and those in similarly depraved pursuits; I then feel and act purified from the profane until the next episode.
Inside this book –The Bed of Procrustes PDF Book by Nassim Nicholas Taleb – The three most harmful addictions are heroin, carbohydrates, and a monthly salary. – My only measure of success is how much time you have to kill. – I wonder if a lion (or a cannibal) would pay a high premium for free- range humans. – If you need to listen to music while walking, don’t walk; and please don’t listen to music. – Men destroy each other during war; themselves during peacetime. – Sports feminize men and masculinize women. – Technology can degrade (and endanger) every aspect of a sucker’s life while convincing him that it is becoming more “efficient.” – The difference between technology and slavery is that slaves are fully aware that they are not free. – You have a real life if and only if you do not compete with anyone in.
