“Everyone wants to be champagne, not the glass. The flower, not the vase. But we need glasses and vases….. We need rabbits. Not just lions.”
I think he means that you can also be this, you don’t have to be that. Like some African parents tell some of their kids to be doctors, they don’t have to be doctors . They don’t have to be a doctor, they can be a tennis player or even a president. We don’t have to be something we’re not just because people say so. Many people are doctors, why can’t you become a astronaut or a scientist or even a dermatologist. There are so many things that people can become, but they don’t because they’re too busy becoming the same thing. We need other professions in the world and who know, you might become the next Neil Armstrong.
