Heard Around Aspen Today
Some of the most interesting, provocative and salient quotes we heard around the Aspen Ideas Festival today:

“A lot of the new issues we’ll need to address in this century are: cyber-terrorism, climate change and pandemics. We cannot solve any of those issues alone or with military power. We have to use our soft power to work with others to address those. Sometimes soft power is power over others — but sometimes it’s power with others.”
- Joseph S. Nye, Jr.
“Change is constant. Context is variable.”
- Chris Luebkeman, Director for Global Foresight + Innovation at Arup
“Have a bias for action.”
- Rye Barcott, author of It Happened on the Way to War
“The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift.”
- Albert Einstein quoted by Linda Tischler, Senior Editor at Fast Company
