“An ocean of written and visual gems for bibliophiles”

Mira M.
9/24/18

The devotees of literature, arts, and science appreciate the existence of this website that not simply presents brain pickings but makes our brains think in an alternative, anti-routine way. It feeds Imagination. I must confess that I often started my work day at my PC with viewing new gems found and elucidated by Maria Popova. I enjoy reading those articles, excerpts of the great authors' thoughts and their interpretations. I love that classic literature is the main Mistress in this realm. You may say it's not a big deal to collect great works of others, read them and then post them as quotes or get inspired by knowledge of someone else and try to look witty against the sophisticated background of intellectuals. However, I think its creator is a decent researcher able to notice noetic treasures others can't see at once, and somehow it's difficult to find a website with such a vibrant and insightful content all in one. BP definitely stands out. It feels like an inventive bookworm opened the door to her whimsical library and you didn't simply see the books, but you looked through their pages, concentrated on some, and absorbed the ideas that were magically tailored to your preferences. After I discovered Brain Pickings, I instantly thought, "That's what I could actually do but I haven't created something like that probably because of the wrong focus. Anyway, books are always by my side and who knows, maybe my experience will also turn into something worthy for book lovers and faerie-seekers despite the all-absorbing ordinary reality..." Thank you for the Inspiration, Maria. ;)

Brain Pickings is the brainchild of Maria Popova. It resembles sites like Kottke and Swiss Miss - these folks compile the latest and greatest blurbs related to art, culture, music, film, design, literature, sustainability, etc. Basically anything happening in the world that's interesting would be covered here. Popova interestingly and often enough uses the word "curate" and regards herself as a curator, and there's no doubt that she does indeed curate a museum of modern culture.
