    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?

    What a wonderfully interesting story!!!! I might comment that, for some reason, I always pictured you living and working in England. Go figure.
