"Politicians are elected by us, so we as a collective can always make things better. I really do believe that every time things seem very bleak – and I believe that they look very bleak right now – we figure it out. We have to – that’s how society moves forwards.”"

"I grew up in the sixties where you really were taught that your voice, your responsibility in life is to participate – not just in your own life but in everyone else’s. It’s a good idea that the future isn’t inevitable and we have a say in how it ends."

"You never really learn much from hearing yourself talk."
