1[on the goal of his organization Achilles International] We're giving people an opportunity to achieve. When one achieves it sets off the "Well, if I can do this, I can probably do that too" response. It improves the level of aspiration. When people come together it creates a cohesive group and makes everything a little better.
2[on losing his right leg] Somehow, I wasn't upset. When you lose a leg, there's no ambiguity. You get an artificial leg and keep going.
