Fate is what befalls a man that fails to act. Destiny is for men that refuse to accept their failures as their fate. We’ve all had failures, Teddy. Don’t let them define you; let them refine you. I believe in your destiny. Do you?
— Lamar Wyatt in “Nashville” pilot

Apple sells miniature jetpacks, little pieces of the future that you can hold in your hand. I was told there would be clones and driverless cars and underwater hotels in the future, and I want it all, but the closest I can get is this really slick phone. That’s what Apple offers, in a very tangible way.

Build a man a fire and he’ll be warm for a day. Set a man on fire and he’ll be warm for the rest of his life.

Humans can be intuitive. Designs can be intuitable.

intuit: verb [ with obj. ] understand or work out by instinct

To intuit something requires cognition. Humans can intuit a design.

If the human is very good at intuiting a design, that human is intuitive.

If a design has affordances that make it easier to be intuited by a human, the design is intuitable.

A design doesn’t have a brain. It cannot intuit. It cannot be intuitive.

When you’re in the middle of a story, it isn’t a story at all, but rather a confusion—a dark roaring, a blindness, a wreckage of shattered glass and splintered wood, like a house in a whirlwind or else a boat crushed by the icebergs or swept over the rapids, and all aboard are powerless to stop it. It’s only afterwards that it becomes anything like a story at all, when you’re telling it to yourself or someone else.
— Michael Polley in Stories We Tell

Learn to support and love. You need to drop the hate. You are a sad, sad excuse for a human being. Once you learn to drop the hate, you too can find happiness because we will welcome you with open arms if you learn to open your mind.

Not today, Satan. Not today.

Power, Lincoln—real power—comes not from hate, but from truth.
