The Ironism

The lair of Lars J. Nilsson. Contains random musings on beer, writing and this thing we call life.


Show me that the good in life does not depend upon life’s length, but upon the use we make of it; also, that it is possible, or rather usual, for a man who has lived long to have lived too little.Seneca the Younger

A person who won’t read has no advantage over one who can’t read.Unknown

Slow down and remember this: Most things make no difference. Being busy is a form of laziness—lazy thinking and indiscriminate action.Tim Ferris

True forethought only arises when a man does something towards which no impulse urges him, because his reason tells him that he will profit by it at some future date.Bertrand Russell

Mistakes are not just opportunities for learning; they are, in an important sense, the only opportunity for learning or making something truly new.Daniel C. Dennett

Instead of turning away in denial when you make a mistake, you should become a connoisseur of your own mistakes, turning them over in your mind as if they were works of art, which in a way they are.Daniel C. Dennett

Do not make unnecessary comparisons, never judge without reflection, and accept the limits of your own understanding.Lars J. Nilsson
