Key quotes and takeaways from the show:

“You’re not funnelling information into people, your job is to bring out what’s already inside.” – On teaching.

“The brain is for thinking not for storing.”

“You can’t love others and give love, especially healthy love, until you love yourself.”

“Talk to yourself like you’re talking to your best friend.”

“A child doesn’t berate himself for crawling and not being able to walk, but he keeps at it.”

“When you do get free time, don’t feel guilty about it. Don’t feel guilty about meditating, writing, reading, putting your feet up, sitting in the garden.”

Question of the day:
