Wisdom Quotes

"Polymath is sensemaking"

 

"If I want to put things together, the only way they can look at is all the different edges of, the world around me. Language learning and mathematics, these are techniques that you, get outside yourself."

 

"Language learning commands humility. And that humility allows me to start to see that maybe these things aren't as disconnected as they first appeared."

 

"The digital world is like a dream. Can you grab ones and zeros that are on your Gmail account? Can you grab a Bitcoin? No, you can't really. That whole world can disappear just like a dream."

 

"Digital technologies can now serve those who who are really not only needing to be served, but when they are served, they add so much to the world. You are adding not just their ability to make money and have commerce, but you're adding a whole level of dignity to the life that they can be part of as opposed to being pariahs."

 

"All human beings should have the opportunity to see that they're not stuck. Like they think they are right"

 

"if I'm a like of sorts and I've been able to turn on say 10,000 lights and each one of those lights, I turn on whatever their greatness is. It's not the same as mine or whatever, but they turn on a thousand lights or 10,000 lights or more right now you have a mentality or a mindset that isn't about I'm the light, it's more of how do I turn on lights?"

 

"So if you've done your work and you understand who you are and what you're about, and you see all these opportunities floating around and you go, what do I lose? So if you do your work upfront, then you can go super fast because you have a system"
