Every unpredictable change in the quantity of money would distort its role as a measure of interpersonal value and a conduit for economic information. — Saifedean Ammous

Saving and investing for the long run are the key to capital accumulation and the advance of human civilization. Money is the information and measurement system of an economy, and sound money is what allows trade, investment, and entrepreneurship to proceed on a solid basis, whereas unsound money throws these processes into disarray. — Saifedean Ammous

You want to shock the body and not be constant. Intermittent fasting is an increasingly popular way: Skip breakfast, for example.

That's our natural lifespan. — David Sinclair

When you can measure what you are speaking about, and express it in numbers, you know something about it. — Lord Kelvin

The end of World War II and the dismantling of the New Deal meant the U.S. government cut its spending by an astonishing 75% between 1944 and 1948, and it also removed most price controls for good measure.

The roughly ten million men who were mobilized for the war came back home and were almost seamlessly absorbed into the labor force, as economic production boomed, flying in the face of all Keynesian predictions and utterly obliterating the ridiculous notion that the level of spending is what determines output in the economy. — Saifedean Ammous

It didn’t take long for Germans to point out that they were working until 65 but paying taxes that were going to Greece so people could retire at 55. — Tim Marshall

19 years in a maximum security penal colony. The number of years does not matter. I perfectly understand that, like many political prisoners, I am sitting on a life sentence. Where life is measured by the term of my life or the term of life of this regime. The sentencing figure is not for me. It is for you. You, not me, are being frightened and deprived of the will to resist. You are being forced to surrender your country of Russia without a fight to the gang of traitors, thieves, and scoundrels who have seized power. Putin must not achieve his goal. Do not lose the will to resist. — Alexei Navalny

Success can never be measured by big houses, luxury cars, or fancy clothes. For me, greatness can only be measured by what we do for others… — Chatri Sityodtong

A network state is a social network with a moral innovation, a sense of national consciousness, a recognized founder, a capacity for collective action, an in-person level of civility, an integrated cryptocurrency, a consensual government limited by a social smart contract, an archipelago of crowdfunded physical territories, a virtual capital, and an on-chain census that proves a large enough population, income, and real-estate footprint to attain a measure of diplomatic recognition. — Balaji Srinivasan

Picture the prince, such as most of them are today: a man ignorant of the law, well-nigh an enemy to his people's advantage, while intent on his personal convenience, a dedicated voluptuary, a hater of learning, freedom and truth, without a thought for the interests of his country, and measuring everything in terms of his own profit and desires. — Desiderius Erasmus
