Taleb's inventory

The spiky, Nicholas Nasim Taleb gives some nice responses in the Weekend FT's Inventory:

Ambition or talent: which matters more to success?
Both concepts are modernist nonsense. Success is about honour, feeling morally calibrated, absence of shame, not what some newspaper defines from an external metric.

What would you like to own that you don’t currently possess?
Nothing.

What’s your biggest extravagance?
Books, books and books.
