- And yet that simple universal power of goodness lives within us all and it can still be transcended. And we can all bring it forth in an instant, every single human can bring goodness forth. (7:02-7:20)
- The world in real life is more manageable than it is as viewed through a screen. In that writing, I encourage people a bit more to turn the TV off, turn the computer off, put the phone away and get out and immerse yourself in the world that’s right beside you. (8:30-8:53)
- Aiding community cultures, where it’s safe for people to be their authentic selves, because when people are their authentic selves, that’s when they shine the brightest. (12:21-12:33)
