Discussion: Generate your own motivation

I was rhapsodizing about Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson on Sunday, so I thought it appropriate to start a discussion about something he said.

Here's a quote from him. Read it, then post in the comments below one thing that you know more about today than you knew yesterday. What else did you take away from his quote?

“The problem, often not discovered until late in life, is that when you look for things in life like love, meaning, motivation, it implies they are sitting behind a tree or under a rock. The most successful people in life recognize, that in life they create their own love, they manufacture their own meaning, they generate their own motivation. For me, I am driven by two main philosophies, know more today about the world than I knew yesterday. And lessen the suffering of others. You'd be surprised how far that gets you. ”
Neil deGrasse Tyson,
