Quotes from the Interview:
* Me as a carburetor I only find meaning when I’m attached to the car. Me as a human being I only find meaning in my life when I realize I’m attached to the whole. That I’m a part of the whole.
* Just accept whatever comes, however it comes, whenever it comes. Be patient, be strong, have faith.
* We can’t do this alone. We need each other to support. When we’re low we need a little support. And we’re there to offer support when someone else’s a little low. And that keeps us going until we can reach that final end stage of yoga.
