The four tweets I have designated as favorites on Twitter, the first because I teach property law and the others because they are sublime:
@ShitMyDadSays: “‘The dog don’t like you planting stuff there. It’s his backyard. If you’re the only one who shits in something, you own it. Remember that.’”
@DalaiLama: “Noticing a single shortcoming in ourselves is far more useful than seeing a thousand in someone else. When it is our own: we can correct it.”
@DalaiLama: “The nature of our motivation determines the character of our work.”
@TychoBrahe: “I overheard my son in his room: ‘I know you’re just fabric and stuffing and plastic,’ he said. ‘But you’ve been a wonderful friend to me.’”
I submit these four tweets alone justify all the social capital invested, sometimes wasted, and diverted into the production of Twitter.
