We discovered that if your friend's friend's friend gained weight, you gained weight. We discovered that if your friend's friend's friend stopped smoking, you stopped smoking. And we discovered that if your friend's friend's friend became happy, you became happy.More Nicholas Christakis quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

Everyday interactions we have with other people are definitely contagious, in terms of happiness.More Nicholas Christakis quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
It is the spread of the good things that vindicates the whole reason we live our lives in networks. If I was always violent to you or gave you germs, you would cut the ties to me and the network would disintegrate. In a deep and fundamental way, networks are connected to goodness, and goodness is required for networks to emerge and spread.More Nicholas Christakis quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
We will create life from inanimate compounds, and we will find life in space. But the life that should more immediately interest us lies between these extremes, in the middle range we all inhabit between our genes and our stars.More Nicholas Christakis quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
