Brain Pickings is Maria Popova’s “one-woman labor of love”. This wonderful website is a true treasure trove of inspiring and thought provoking musings on the important themes in life, drawn from art, science, psychology, design, philosophy, history, politics, anthropology and more. In Popova’s own words: “In order for us to truly create and contribute to the world, we have to be able to connect countless dots, to cross-pollinate ideas from a wealth of disciplines, to combine and recombine these pieces and build new ideas.”
