Quotes:

“This would make more money, you do that this is a guaranteed success! That's like, that's not the point. You know, what's the point of  doing something that you don't derive a sort of innate joy from for 40 years, and then being able to, you know, go play basketball when you're 70 and your body doesn't work anymore?”

“When you hit like the product-market fit on anything, the natural gravity of the universe is pulling you towards growth.”
