Quotes

“People just want to live their lives.  They don’t want to be constrained, and they don’t want to hear about what they can’t do.  They want to hear about what they can do.” (12:04)

“There are people in Bangladesh dying because water levels are rising, right?  And then that has nothing to do with the fact that you would like rich people to be less rich, right?  And it’s really dangerous tying both of those things together because when you tie both of those things together you alienate whole swathes of the population.  And then poor people in Bangladesh drown because you’ve got some other agenda.” (14:16)

“Find a way of becoming wiser earlier, right?  And then trust yourself once you are becoming 

wise.  None of us are perfectly wise, but find a way of listening to and trusting yourself.”  (40:29)
