How important are style and substance in your life?
Substance is everything. But it is so profound, it is often opaque. Style is the light that glints off substance—allowing us to catch a glimpse of it —sometimes, but not always.
What gives you daily strength and inspiration?
Of course I gain great strength from family & friends. But also by thinking about the inspiring ones who have come before us. Those are our collective ancestors —the warriors, the goddesses, the trailblazers, the people who didn’t settle for mediocrity, mediocre justice, mediocre education, mediocre culture. They dreamed about the future. So now we are living in their future. We follow in their footsteps and owe them a great debt.
