Its an impossible task to adequately summarize all the ideas and inspiration of this last week at TEDIndia in Mysore. Here are ten quotes - in no particular order - from various talks (attributed where I remember who said it) that stuck in my mind and are worth sharing.
 
"Getting more, from less, for more" - R.A. Mashelkar

"Being a girl is so powerful that we've had to train everyone not to be that." - Eve Ensler

"Write your obituary. If you don't like the way it reads, change your life, now."

"If you're not living on the edge, you're taking up too much space." - Lakshmi Pratury

"It's not charity. It is ourselves we are helping. It's ourselves we are healing." - Thulasiraj Ravilla

"We develop grand concepts of happiness, but there are little symbols of happiness in the breath we take." - His Holiness the Karmapa

"To understand different viewpoints, we have to understand the myths and stories that shape them." - Devdutt Pattanaik

"'I do not know' is the engine that powers the longing to know." - Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev

"Minds on the margin are not marginal minds." - Anil Gupta

"We don't enter the future, we create it. And we create what we imagine." - Ramachandra Budihal
 
I'm sure there are several great quotes I've missed here, so feel free to leave them in the comments.
