"You are more creative than you think. The inspiration you've been looking for is right around the corner. Someone will soon help you solve an old problem. Big ideas come from one person. Bigger ideas come from two. An unexpected stranger will become your teammate. To reach your potential, you must first meet each other. You will soon meet a future collaborator. If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together."
