Memorable Quotes

“I have this belief that we don’t change and transform because of science, we change because of story. Science informs, but story transforms.”– Jay Shetty

“The focus behind each video is you should be able to watch it in 10 years and it should still make sense. It should have that timelessness. It should not become a trend or a fad. It should not be a video that isn’t eternally relevant because I believe wisdom is timeless.” – Jay Shetty

“There’s more of a responsibility for us to be more loyal, to be more committed, to really value our audience, because without them, we wouldn’t even have a presence.” – Jay Shetty
