“I see people coming with big idealist visions of becoming a new leader who will create a better world, they enjoy the goal but not the process. But the reality of it is that the work of improving things is in the little achievements of the day and that’s what you need to enjoy to stay in that field.

Screen grab from Before Sunset (2004)

I see people who do the real work and what’s really sad about it is that, the people who are most giving, hardworking and capable of making this world better usually don’t have the ega and ambition to be a leader they don’t see any interest in superficial rewards, they don’t care if their name ever appears in the press. They actually enjoy the process of helping others, they in the moment.”
