Letter to Bloomberg on Deepak Chopra’sQuote of the Day

Quote of the Day on Apr 5, 2016: Deepak Chopra
“Always go with your passions. Never ask yourself if it’s realistic or not.”
— Deepak Chopra
To Bloomberg Editorial Staff:
I have long been a fan of the Quote of the Day, which is read by thousands as they log in to their accounts every morning. From ancient philosophers to witty celebrities, your staff usually choose inspiring, thoughtful, and clever quotations that can be usefully recycled in cocktail conversations. Today’s selection is an exception: not only have you chosen a pseudo-scientific con artist, but the quote itself is stupid, if not dangerous. The only defence for this selection is that it accurately captures the idiotic Chopra’s ideas as being nonsense and diametrically opposed to the use of one’s brain. However, I doubt that it was selected with a sense of irony. If at all possible, please replace the quote with something sensible rather than promoting notions that I would hope are diametrically opposed to what Bloomberg, as a company, stands for.
Yours faithfully,
David Nowakowski
