Paul Graham: my idols are
I have in stock several topics about which you can write and write. One of them is "idols".
Of course, this is not the list of the most respectable people in the world. I think that such a list is unlikely to be able to make, even with a great desire.
For example, Einstein, he is not on my list, but certainly he deserves a place among the most respected people. Once I asked my friend, who is studying physics, whether Einstein was really such a genius, and she answered in the affirmative. So why is not he on the list then? All because there are those people who influenced me, and not those who could influence, if I realized the full value of their work.
I had to think about someone and understand if this person is my hero. Thoughts were varied. For example, Montaigne, the creator of the essay, dropped out of my list. Why? Then I asked myself what it takes to call a person a hero. It turns out that you just need to imagine what this person would do in my place in this or that situation. Agree, this is not admiration at all.
After I made the list, I saw in it a common thread. Everyone on the list had two characteristics: they were overly concerned about their works, but nevertheless were extremely honest. By honesty, I do not understand the performance of all that the viewer wants. They were basically provocateurs for this reason, although they hide it to varying degrees.
