“The best ideas come you when you switch your mind off, the space between dreams and realities.”
“It’s a tragedy when people come up with ideas and feel fear to follow through.”
“The very nature of ideas pushes us outside of our comfort zone, because an idea is an act of creation that can transform your reality, and whatever pathway you are on is about to change.”
“People's authority for change rests within themselves.”
"There’s no such thing as a bad idea. There are plenty of ideas that can’t be implemented."
"That’s the whole point of us being a collaborative species where our ideas should be expressed. Because other people can run with them."
