On Mothers

What unites us is that every single one of us — and I really mean every single one of us because it’s one of the few things we have in common no matter what in the world we believe or what we look like or where we come from — is that we all have mothers, complicated mothers who somehow or other got us here to Earth. Those mothers had mothers too.

I don't think you can be deliberate about shaping your course forward because you then end up somewhere completely stale and expected.
