“Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?”
I want to build things and blow them up. I want to act irresponsibly. I want to play music. I want to be rewarded with a Nobel Prize if I save people lives and go to jail if I cheat. I want to keep on being fascinated every time I look at a picture taken from space. I want to dream some more about the immensity of the universe. I want to try hard, as hard as I can, but never forget the beauty and the absurdity of the world we live in.

I want to go on pretending I am a kid.
