"Worldview changes three things: attention, bias and vernacular. Attention, because we choose to pay attention to those things that we’ve decided matter. Bias, because our worldview alters the way we filter and interpret what we hear. And vernacular, because words and images resonate with people differently based on their worldview."

"The lottery is great, because it’s easy. Not certain, but easy. If you win, the belief goes, you’re done. Medical school is great because it’s certain. Not easy, but certain.
