On the importance of being a lifelong learner: “One of the biggest mistakes we make in our country is this sense that when you go to college, you're done with the learning phase of life, right? When you go to college, what I hope is you've now learned how to learn… What defines great careers is the learning you do over the next 40 years in your career.”

On the business of problem solving: “I've always liked solving problems… Business is about solving problems to meet the needs of consumers. That's what we do at Citadel. That's what you do here at Goldman Sachs.”
