"You have to create a condition for an idea to survive. It’s like creating an economy to make it worthwhile to promote. I had to see the big picture of things. If you say, 'Okay, this has to be completed after I’m dead,' then what do you need to do to make it work? It has to be self-sustaining. It has to prove itself to be self-sustaining."
