Jim Yong Kim

If there are no stupid questions, then what kind of questions do stupid people ask? Do they get smart just in time to ask questions?
In baseball, my theory is to strive for consistency, not to worry about the numbers. If you dwell on statistics you get shortsighted, if you aim for consistency, the numbers will be there at the end.
