"One of the things in American culture is a big compassion deficit, a big empathy deficit: 'just smile, tell me the good stuff and shut up'."
"If I was worth $500 million, perhaps things would come true for me by visualising them too."
"Next time the company brings in the motivational speaker, everybody [should walk] out."
