"In the spring of 1800, he was preparing to lead an army into Italy. His field marshals warned him that the Alps were not passable at that time of year and told him to wait, even though waiting would spoil the chances for success. The general replied to them, 'For Napoleon's army, there shall be no Alps.' And mounted on a mule, Napoleon proceeded to personally lead his troops through treacherous terrain and past innumerable obstacles. It was the force of one man's will that brought them through the Alps, catching the enemy completely by surprise and defeating them. There are no Alps and no obstacles that can stand in the way of a person without fears."

The very first thing I remember in my early childhood is a flame, a blue flame jumping off a gas stove somebody lit... I was three years old. I felt fear, real fear, for the first time in my life, but I remember it also like some kind of adventure, some kind of weird joy, too. I guess that experience took me someplace in my head I hadn't been before. To some frontier, the edge, maybe, of everything possible... The fear I had was almost like an invitation, a challenge to go forward into something I knew nothing about. That's where I think my personal philosophy of life... started, with that moment... in my mind I have always believed and thought since then that my motion had to be forward, away from the heat of that flame.
