The only people whose interest it is in is Africans, but they have no voice. -Dambisa Moyo

My family was well off but not rich. I spent the four years I was an undergraduate working on the beach.

I realized that the ordinary old-fashioned Euclidean geometry didn't apply. -Paul Samuelson

I reject the idea of work-life balance.
