I always wanted to be somebody, but now I realize I should have been more specific. – Lily Tomlin

As humans, we all have the same potential, unless there is some sort of retarded brain function.  The wonderful human brain is the source of our strength and the source of our future, provided we utilize it in the right direction.  If we use the brilliant human mind in a wrong way, it really is a disaster. 

-Dalai Lama from this book.
