"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world."John Sununu on Nelson Mandela
"The only thing that interferes with my learning is my education."John Sununu on Albert Einstein

"Energy and environmental regulation, transportation, and broadband policy all benefit when legislators have a basic grounding in the technical concepts behind business models, products, and innovation."
