“Everybody talks about wanting to change things and help and fix, but ultimately all you can do is fix yourself. And that's a lot. Because if you can fix yourself, it has a ripple effect.”
Rob Reiner

Steve Wozniak
“If you love what you do and are willing to do what it takes, it's within your reach. And it'll be worth every minute you spend alone at night, thinking and thinking about what it is you want to design or build. It'll be worth it, I promise.”
Steve Wozniak

Elizabeth Bear
“The end of the world was supposed to be gradual. There was supposed to be warning. A long, slow slide. What we got was punctuated equilibrium: a stately wobbling, then a sudden tipping point. There was plenty of warning, I suppose. We just weren’t paying attention.”
Elizabeth Bear

“Only a generation of readers will spawn a generation of writers.”
Steven Spielberg

J.K. Rowling
“We do not need magic to transform our world. We carry all the power we need inside ourselves already.”
J.K. Rowling
