/// Values

"Business opportunities are like buses; there is always other one coming."

"The Perfect Way is only difficult for those who pick and choose; Do not like, do not dislike; all will then be clear. Make a hairbreadth difference, and Heaven and Earth are set apart; if you want the truth to stand clear before you, never be for or against. The struggle between 'for' and 'against' is the mind's worst disease."

"I'm a slow walker, but I never walk back."

"When I have no roof I made Audacity my roof."

"Do rewards motivate people? 'Absolutely. They motivate people to get rewards.'"

"We're designed to be active and engaged. And we know that the richest experiences in our lives aren't when we're clamouring for validation from others, but when we're listening to our own voice--doing something that matters, doing it well, and doing it in the service of a cause bigger than ourselves."

"... our capacity to understand and manipulate human genomes alters our conception of what it means to be human."

"The heart has its reason of which reason knows nothing"

"Never reply when you are angry. Never make a promise when you are happy. Never make a decision when you are sad."
