I’ve worked with people and I’ve known people that were really competitive but I’ve always said that I take an Elizabeth Bennett philosophy of life — I laugh. I love my job but if it means hurting someone I won’t do it.
"We’ve always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we’ve just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we’ve barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us." - Cooper
