      • Nov 30 2011: I wish I could learn from great people like Richard Feynman, Aristotle, mainly people that are not with us anymore only in books and thought. I wish I would have the privilege to be thought by great people who are alive right now even if it is just five minutes. It would be a great honer to truly listen. Kids are great I just really think I need to grow up by now.
