If you could have one superpower..
Question: If you could have any superpower, what would it be?
Cory Booker: I love it. Well, I ask that question so often. I'm that kind of crazy guy. I'm a sci-fi fan, you know, anything is possible with the imagination, so it never hurts to dream impossible dreams, you never know they might come true. So I believe that if I had any possible superpower, there's only one superpower I would really really really want that would be on top of that list. And to me it's the only thing--and this why almost from a spiritual sense it's very profound--because I think that time is so precious, that so much of us waste time thinking about the past and what already happened and not really focussing on where you are in the present moment, but I would have the total control over time. Cause that's really my only enemy. I just wish I had more time to read, to write letters to friends, to express gratitude, to say thank you, to plan, to vision, to sleep, to...time. If I had more time, I feel like I could be doing so much more. But it makes it even more important to me not to count the days or hours but to make every hour and day count. Yeah, so understanding that, it makes life all the more meaningful.
