No creature needs to be threatened with death to act in accord with its own nature."

Author: Ha Joon Chang

It's not enough to ask what successful people are like, in other words. It is only by asking where they are from that we can unravel the logic behind who succeeds and who doesn't."
Author: Malcolm Gladwell
