Steve Forman is a brutally funny writer. His no-nonsense, unadorned style begs comparison to Dashiell Hammett, but Hammett’s humor at its darkest never hit home this hard. Reading of Eddie Perlmutter’s exploits is like rolling in an aisle paved with broken glass and wanting to do it all over again two minutes later.
I’ve got a strength and conditioning coach, a weights coach, but I’ve also got a nutritionist, a physiotherapist and a masseur available to me if I need it. It’s quite a good network. I’ve also got sports scientists who record the technical information, so that, after the race, we can analyse the video and check comparisons between, not only me and the other competitors, but me and my best performance. I couldn’t do it without these guys, but I’m the one who gets all the credit.
Monetary calculation is not the calculation, and certainly not the measurement, of value. Its basis is the comparison of the more important and the less important. It is an ordering according to rank, an act of grading (Cuhel), and not an act of measuring. It was a mistake to search for a measure of the value of goods.

I spent five years of my life being treated for cancer, but since then I’ve spent fifteen years being treated for nothing other than looking different from everyone else.

There’s no comparison. ‘Gratuity’ in written Boovish has seventeen different bubbles that all have to be the right size and in the right place. ‘J.Lo’ in written English only has three letters, and you still spelled it ‘M-smiley face-pound sign.
What I learned from comparisons and jealousies is that they point to where you haven’t filled your cup or owned your gifts. They point to where you are not yet 100% you. We know that when you are fully engaged in doing what you’re doing and your heart and creative spirit are involved, you couldn’t care less what anybody else is doing.

It must not be thought that it is ever possible to reach the interior earth by any perseverance in mining: both because the exterior earth is too thick, in comparison with human strength; and especially because of the intermediate waters, which would gush forth with greater impetus, the deeper the place in which their veins were first opened; and which would drown all miners.
