Love Letters to Humans (no. 12) – on Giving a Fuck

Some people have zero fucks to give. That’s not me, and yet with all this abundance you will not find me recklessly squandering a single fuck.

I like to think of where I give my extraordinarily precious bounty o’fucks as important investments.

I ask myself: What’s the ROI here? Will this increase joy in the world? Will it decrease suffering? Do I really want to invest in this?

For the most part this line of inquiry allows me to determine fairly easily if it is a fuck I can afford to give.

Question everything.
