What's your favorite single sentence from a TEDTalk?

Jill Bolte Taylor: "I am the life-force power of the universe."

You know it when you hear it: the sentence, the quote that gives you chills. Maybe it's exceedingly wise, or maybe it's just funny or pithy -- but it's an idea worth spreading in one sentence. What's your favorite one-sentence quote from a TEDTalk?

    Feb 15 2011: My preferred sentence has no sense without its context. It's "They will in a minute" from Sir Ken Robinson's talk Schools Kill Creativity. That was the answer from the girl drawing a picture of God to her teacher who said that nobody knows what God looks like.

    I think the world would be completely different if we all were so focused on our real convictions and we really believed on what we are doing as much as this girl does.
