Tweetable Quotes:

“What I’ve always done is sort of try to take my pain, and turn it into purpose… I’m able to identify the mistakes I have made, even if I don’t have the wisdom or the answers to course-correct immediately.” - Harris III

“All behavior, all choice, all worldview, all our thinking as human beings is driven by narrative… the narrative that we adopt as true...” - Harris III

“When we’re in a state of wonder it creates a sense of openness… I define wonder as what gives us permission to believe in a story that we have yet to see.” - Harris III
