Hannah Arendt on Life

This is the precept by which I have lived: Prepare for the worst; expect the best; and take what comes.

~ Hannah Arendt

Charlie Munger on Expectations

“This modern world is radically different and I’m not sure if I were starting out in your world how well I would do,” he said. “It would be a lot harder than it was to get ahead in the world the way it was when I came up. My best advice, I think you would be happier if you reduced your expectations.”
