Discomfort Quotations

I spent a lot of years trying to outrun or outsmart vulnerability by making things certain and definite, black and white, good and bad.

Brene Brown

With ideas it is like with dizzy heights you climb: At first they cause you discomfort and you are anxious to get down, distrustful of your own powers; but soon the remoteness of the turmoil of life and the inspiring influence of the altitude calm your blood; your step gets firm and sure and you begin to look - for dizzier heights.
Nikola Tesla

Leonard Susskind
