Alberto Alissi said a lot of things that night. It was so long ago I forgot most of them. But, I'll never forget what he said about courage. "The ledge of sanity is here (he points at his feet). Everybody in design (he steps backwards) is way back here. They want to be as far from the ledge as possible. I want to be (he walks back to the imaginary ledge and stops) here. As close to the ledge as possible."
