Racing takes so much determination, guts, and sacrifice to be on top. I once craved, lived, and breathed racing. I can honestly say now, I'm ready to slow down and enjoy my life.

If you go back far enough and get a wider enough picture of history, we have let go of many things that follow a religious narrative. We don't burn witches anymore.

With the power of conviction, there is no sacrifice.
We engineered activity out of our lives in the name of convenience. We created foods that put fried, fatty, sweet, and salty ahead of fresh, natural, and healthy.

In everyday things the law of sacrifice takes the form of positive duty.

It's kind of the yin and yang that fascinate me.

A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
Martin Luther King, Jr.
