What is your favourite single sentence from a TED Talk?

I wanted to keep it going since it really can serve as an important place to store those most succinct and powerful utterances.

I was so struck by Aaron O'Connell closing remarks from his talk in the 4th session of TED2011. Poorly recalled is would be:
"Just as quantum objects are defined by their relationships to other objects, so to are people defined by our connections to other people".

If you can better the quote please do so.

Please share your favourites from TED2011 here.

As has been said before, we are all atheists about most of the gods that humanity has ever believed in, some of us just go one god further. - Richard Dawkins

    You got to persist through CRAP! which means Criticism, Rejection, Assholes and Pressure. - Richard St. Johns
