all human beings are entrepreneurs

Quote from the book 'The Start-up of You' by Reid Hoffman and Ben Casnocha

All human beings are entrepreneurs. When we were in the caves, we were all self-employed... finding our food, feeding ourselves. That's where human history began. As civilization came, we suppressed it.We became "labor" because they stamped us, "You are labor." We forgot that we are entrepreneurs. 
~ Muhammad Yunus, Nobel Peace Prize winner and microfinance pioneer

Sigh. When things become too comforting to live with, I guess we will end up in hibernation.
