As night faded toward morning and the pizza box lay empty, the students were filled with a restless desire for even greater knowledge. Would they ever experience sex as something other than sordid and incidental? Ever be able to buy a house, lift their own children into their arms? Did life hold fierce secret joys they could not yet imagine?
They rubbed their eyes and readjusted their ear buds, then returned to Facebook. Only to find themselves glancing up every so often at their pale reflections in the dark rain-streaked windows, wondering what else was out there.

When you google Daniel H. Pink the first result will tell you that he is a New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestselling author, the others will lead you to his Amazon page or TED Talk. I did not take this at face value and I questioned his status, because in this day and age not all bestselling books have something worthy to say in the end. Thankfully I was proven wrong in my doubt and after some 200 pages I can honestly say that the man deserves every bit of praise that comes his way!

„There is a vitality, a life-force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action and because there is only one of you in all of time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and be lost” – Martha Graham
