Nothing important happens in life without a cost. Sometimes the most important things that we do are things we cannot measure. What is the cost of not daring? What is the cost of not trying?

And it’s in the total of all those acts that the history of this generation will be written– Jacquline Novogratz, Founder of Acumen Fund
