"I do not believe in changing laws to change reality.You can write a law, but the law does not change reality.The reality is very stubborn.Then to change reality, I think there has to be a conjunction of interests willing to change that reality. "
"If there is a place in the world where we can do something to accommodate the world, it is in Venezuela. If any place in the world presents a major challenge that is Venezuela. I studied my postgraduate degree oversees, I have worked in universities in other countries and I think the impact of my work is higher in Venezuela than in other places. It's going to cost me a lot more to do things, yes, it's true, but it's going to deliver much more in Venezuela than elsewhere."
