A few of Taleb’s ‘satya vachan’

Faking love is easy. Faking hate is not so easy. Bad-mouthing is the only genuine expression of admiration. A bitter enemy becomes jealous the moment he comes to know you hate someone else more than him. You know you have arrived once you know you have made a crossover from the camp of the hating to the camp of the hated. You know you have arrived when people start noticing your absence more than the presence of others.
