I was always very different from the other kids. I have an I.Q. of 156. I didn't play sports. I thought big. I thought I could achieve great things. I don't want to sound megalomaniac, but my whole life is about doing something for the world, from as far back as I can remember.
If I can turn the most powerful part of the world into a land of wisdom and compassion, it's going to change the rest of the world.
If the mind is calm, your spontaneity and honest thoughts appear. You become more spontaneous.
Compassion is so pure, I don't think there is any way to taint it.
Success and failure are emotional and physiological experiences. We need to deal with them in a way that is present and calm.
