"This is paul wheaton's daily-ish email that is usually about
permaculture and making a better world through learning good things
rather than being angry at bad guys."
Also on one of the earlier (I think, did not listen to them in order, but I have listened to them all ) podcasts he mentions and I'm paraphrasing and forgetful 'that a girl from his first PDC mentioned this idea to him'. Please correct me if I'm wrong.
Also I will say it is my favorite quote, (the dailyish version) because it actually changed my way of interacting, thinking and living. The first dailyish email I got after signing up, I read that and then reread it, paused, said it out loud, paused again, clankings and whirrings inside my head then went about my life different and better for it. Before that I was beating my head against many walls trying to wake people up with a huge info arsenal I had collected about bad guys and bad guy goings on. I kept thinking there had to be a better way due to my lack of success. My friend woke me up that way, but it took years! Then I get that email and it all fell into place. So simple. That girl definitely payed it forward with that phrase and I plan on continuing it. It is almost self-propagating in a way.
