“Life can be much broader, once you discover one simple fact, and that is that everything around you that you call ‘life’ was made up by people that were no smarter than you. And you can change it, you can influence it, you can build your own things that other people can use. Once you learn that, you’ll never be the same again.” 
“To do original work: It’s not necessary to know something nobody else knows. It is necessary to believe something few other people believe.” 
It’s probably not about what you know or don’t know. It’s about what you believe and your willingness to do it. There is where all the difference lies.
