Paulo Coelho

“There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve: the fear of failure.” – Paulo Coelho (The Alchemist)


Astro Teller

“If I was to tell you that we’re gonna try to get a monkey up on a ten foot pedestal to give us Shakespeare monologues, which do you think we should do, train the monkey first or build the pedestal first? Like we could build the pedestal, it seems like we made progress. But that’s probably the wrong thing to have spent time on, cause if we can’t get the monkey to do the monologues on the ground, then we just wasted the time and money on the pedestal.” – Astro Teller (Captain of Moonshots (CEO) of X)
