Quotations: "I have often found myself in the company of people who have very linear approaches to their work lives, who adopt a strategic approach that asks ‘Where do I want to be in five years, and what do I need to do to get there?’ My path has been nonlinear, and my guiding principle is rather ‘What do I want to do (and where will that place me)?’ I don’t choose to work on things that I think will be good for my career, but on things that are of great interest and concern to me. Then I see where that work carries me."
