Nobel Speech 2006-Muhammad Yynus - We Create What We Want.
We wanted to go to the moon, so we went there.
We achieve what we want to achieve.
We accept that poverty is part of human destiny. It’s not!
We believe we can create a poverty-free world.
We need to invent ways to change our perspective.
We can reconfigure our world if we can reconfigure our mindset. .
Social business will be a new kind of business, making a difference in the world.
Human beings are a wonderful creation embodied with limitless human qualities and capabilities.
Entrepreneurs are not one-dimensional human beings, dedicated to maximizing profit.
They are multi-dimensional: political, emotional, social, spiritual, environmental.
The desire to do great things for the world can be a powerful driving force
Young people dream about creating a perfect world of their own.
Social business will give them a challenge to make a difference by using their creative talent.
Let us join hands to unleash our energy and creativity.
Collectively, we can create a poverty-free world.”
