sticks and stones, may break my bones

Never eat alone. Do one thing every day that scares you.

Learn one new thing every day.

What is it about, literally, fortune cookies and their abstract bit of knowledge that makes every single one us want to find a way to adapt it towards into what’s true for our own life?

What is it about those completely random, fictional fortunes that make us believe that it is revealing a flicker of our future and our fate?
