Life is meant to be valued, not optimized

You are not a product.

This is a great reminder. That your life should be a work of art, not a product. That you should live according to your own values, not those of the people around you.

“Works of art are made to be beautiful. Beauty is not susceptible to changes in ‘demand’. If no one wants it, it can still be extremely beautiful, and therefore valuable.

“Products, on the other hand, are made to be sold: to serve, or please, customers. Demand is everything. If no one wants a product, it’s worthless.

“If your life is a product, then, if no one wants your life, it’s worthless.”

Live the life you want.
