Alain de Botton – Swiss-British philosopher

As people, and as a culture, Alain de Botton says, we would be much saner and happier if we reexamined our very view of love.
  • love is going only to those having the money & possessions
  • Alain is the founder of the School of Life
  • interesting: when he earned his 1st million, his father was not impressed at all

School of life

“Most of what makes a book ‘good’ is that we are reading it at the right moment for us.” “Intimacy is the capacity to be rather weird with someone – and finding that that’s ok with them.” “The moment we cry in a film is not when things are sad but when they turn out to be more beautiful than we expected them to be.”
