" The sexiest thing in
the entire world is being really smart.
And being thoughtful. And
being generous. Everything else is crap, I promise you.
It’s just crap that people try to sell to you to make you
feel like less. So don’t buy it. Be smart. Be thoughtful
and be generous.
When you grow up you tend
to get told that the world is the way that it is. And that
your life is to live your life inside the world and try no to get
into too much trouble and maybe get an education and get a job
and make some money and have a family. But life can be a lot
broader than that when you realize one simple thing. And that is
that everything around us that we call life was made up by people
that are no smarter than you. And you can build your own
things, you can build your own life that other people can live
So build a life,
don’t live one. Build one."
- Christopher Ashton Kutcher
