Remarkable quotes:

"If you clutter things people aren't paying attention to you anymore."

"You coming late and you get out early"

"If you wanna get your message out, you might just have a moment or two! "

"If I have a 3 hour speech to give, I'll get up and write it right now. No big deal!

If I only have 20 minutes, I'll put in 10 hours to make sure those 20 minutes are as synchronised as possible.

And if I only have 5 minutes, I'll spend the whole week to make sure I maximize each and every second I am allotted."
