Although my then-girlfriend didn’t form quite the right mental image when she heard that I was “hacking on the Eunuchs’ colonel”.
Priceless!

I like this passage:

"This sense that clarity and completeness come from working through the hard corner cases… That’s applicable everywhere in life."

Great little motivator.

P.S How do I quote something properly from the actual interview?
