"You Know What, Man? I Don’t Give a S--- What People Think" (interview with Peter Ragone)

You’ve been quoted—a lot—about ignoring the chatter and focusing on “the long view.” Most of the bullshit in politics, people don’t even know about it—if they do, they don’t care about it.

By people like Barney Frank, by Dianne Feinstein—the people who got him elected! But if you do something special, the world catches up to you. And you’ll be rewarded for it.
