6. “The first step is to establish that something is possible; then probability will occur.” – Elon Musk

13. “You have to be pretty driven to make it happen. Otherwise, you will just make yourself miserable.” – Elon Musk

14. “Work like hell. I mean you just have to put in 80 to 100 hour weeks every week. [This] improves the odds of success.

15. “If you go back a few hundred years, what we take for granted today would seem like magic – being able to talk to people over long distances, to transmit images, flying, accessing vast amounts of data like an oracle.

18. “Let’s think beyond the normal stuff and have an environment where that sort of thinking is encouraged and rewarded and where it’s okay to fail as well. Because when you try new things, you try this idea, that idea… well a large number of them are not gonna work, and that has to be okay. If every time somebody comes up with an idea it has to be successful, you’re not gonna get people coming up with ideas.” – Elon Musk

19. “Really, the only thing that makes sense is to strive for greater collective enlightenment.” – Elon Musk
