Inspiration from Van Jones podcast

Recently, I've listened to almost all of the podcasts from the 2006 Nonprofit Boot Camp. The latest one I played was the keynote address by Van Jones, the founder of the Ella Baker Center for Human Rights. I generally don't care much for motivational speeches (like keynotes often are, at this type of event). But this one was an exception. My favorite quote from the podcast:
You have a dream inside yourself, and it's an impossible dream. That's why the Creator gave it to your crazy ass. If it was easy, she would have given it to someone else!
