1. We're here to put a dent in the universe. Otherwise why else even be here?
2. Be a yardstick of quality. Some people aren't used to an environment where excellence is expected.
3. Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower.
4. You know, we don't grow most of the food we eat. We wear clothes other people make. We speak a language that other people developed. We use a mathematics that other people evolved... I mean, we're constantly taking things. It's a wonderful, ecstatic feeling to create something that puts it back in the pool of human experience and knowledge.
