Selected Quotes:

  • “Anxiety can be simply described as the measurement between your idealization and your actuality.  The man you think you should be and the man you are.  The greater that is, the more anxious you become.”

  • “You don’t need all those vitamins.  I mean a lot of those vitamins are bullshit anyway.” -Charlie Griffin, nutrition expert

  • “I feel like my whole live I’ve been obsessed with topics, and all I want to do is dive in and learn them.”

  • “Learning is nothing but mentorship.  It’s taking a piece of knowledge that someone possesses and passing that over to someone else.” – Josh Aharonoff
