Quote of the Day: A Letter of Advice

Erudition without bullshit, intellect without cowardice, courage without imprudence, mathematics without nerdiness, scholarship without academia, intelligence without shrewdness, religiosity without intolerance, elegance without softness, sociality without dependence, enjoyment without addiction, and, above all, nothing without skin in the game.
This terse but stirring “letter of advice to a younger person” is from Nassim Nicolas Taleb at Facebook.
