Tweets and Retweets

Here’s a handful of recent Twitter entries on random subjects like kindness, grievances, consensus, and the limits of humility. If you don’t already, feel free to follow me on Twitter here.
- The trouble with opinions is that they drive wedges between people. Stories unite, opinions divide.
- I look forward to the day when journalists, producers and filmmakers describe themselves not as independent but as interdependent.
- Technological advances have to proceed in step with social advances or they lead to recklessness and misery.
- I shudder every time I hear someone say that the iPad, and other devices like it, allow us “to consume content.”
- Sooner or later we come to recognize that most of our problems in life are tied to grievances we simply refuse to let go.
- The only change that matters in the end is the kind that starts with me.
- Sometimes a loving act may be perceived as unloving — refusing to commiserate, for example.
- I think consensus is better to strive for than to attain.
- I used to say “I don’t know” a lot. Humility is good, right? Then a wise friend told me: “Stop pretending you don’t know and live your truth.”
- Why do we know more at 25 than we do at 50? Because it takes half a lifetime to fully confront our own ignorance.
- We don’t need our kindnesses returned, we need them passed on.
- Gratitude is the highest form of devotion.
