"Work. Sleep. Family. Friends. Fitness. Pick three. And remember, you can choose a different three every day. As long as it balances out in the long run, you're ok. So don't put pressure on yourself to do all five of those things well every single day." - Randi Zuckerberg
Our French socialist law professor says that he doesn't like poor people. What he means is that he doesn't like people to be poor. It makes it difficult to live as a community. He believes in better living conditions for prisoners. "What's to make people fear going to jail?" I think. But I have to admit that I agree with him. Growing up in conditions which allow access to information, exposure and opportunities to learn and to work, I cannot imagine why anyone would behave offensively.
