Humility itself is not something that can be spoken of, it can only be practiced.
Being human is a really messy thing.
"Learn the thing that you need to learn to make the things that you want to make."
"You have to tell them what our value is because if you're not advocating constantly, if you're not constantly educating people, you're not changing the game."
If there is something that I'm interested in but I'm really scared to do it, that's the best indicator that I will learn something from it.
