Chopra would like to sit down with Nelson Mandela.

Question: Whom would you like to interview, and what would you ask?


Deepak Chopra: I would like to interview Mr. [Nelson] Mandela to see how he managed to maintain his calm, his peace, his creativity and his compassion in the face of real cruelty; in the face of apartheid; in the face of hatred and injustice. Because at no time did Mr. Mandela contribute to the melodrama by adding his anger to it. And that is why he is looked upon in the world as a hero.

I’m not sure if there’s any other living person that I can think of right now that comes to that stature.
