I believe we have to nip Ebola in the bud before it spreads through Africa and to other countries.

We want to make it so that anyone, anywhere – a child growing up in rural India who never had a computer – can go to a store, get a phone, get online, and get access to all of the same things that you and I appreciate about the Internet.
When Facebook was getting started, nothing used real identity – everything was anonymous or pseudonymous – and I thought that real identity should play a bigger part than it did.
Our strategy is very horizontal. We’re trying to build a social layer for everything. Basically, we’re trying to make it so that every app everywhere can be social, whether it’s on the web or mobile or other devices. So inherently, our whole approach has to be a breadth-first approach rather than a depth-first one.
We have a rule that if you check in code, you have to maintain it. So I mostly code on the side. I don’t check in code anymore.

I keep healthy and I’m always very active and always have been so. I don’t really see any signs of aging yet. Music keeps you young.
In the medical community, you would never deny a diabetic his insulin ever. But for some reasons, when someone needs a serotonin inhibitor, they’re immediately crazy or something. And I don’t know, it’s a very interesting double standard that I often don’t have the ability to talk about but I certainly feel no shame about.
I feel like there’s this glamour where the woman who has a psychological illness is in fur, laid out on a chaise. Whereas in reality, a woman with mental illness or is struggling with her psychological wellbeing is often in sweats and in a T-shirt that used to belong to her dad and is covered in food bits.
At the root of this dilemma is the way we view mental health in this country. Whether an illness affects your heart, your leg or your brain, it’s still an illness, and there should be no distraction.
Health is certainly extremely important, and we’ve done a number of things at Facebook to help improve global health and work in that area, and I am excited to do more there, too. But the reality is that it’s not an either-or. People need to be healthy and be able to have the Internet as a backbone to connect them to the whole economy.
A lot of people undermine their own anxiety because they’re like nothing’s necessarily going wrong. It just happens and it’s just inside of you and that’s not something you should be ashamed of. It’s justified because it’s happening.
[on depression] This is a disorder that affects millions of people and I am on of them. There is no need to suffer silently and there is no shame in seeking help.
You dont see the mental illness: Its not a mass; its not a cyst. But its there. Why do you need to prove it?
The worst drugs are as bad as anybody’s told you. It’s just a dumb trip, which I can’t condemn people if they get into it, because one gets into it for one’s own personal, social, emotional reasons. It’s something to be avoided if one can help it.
I’ll drink water. Sometimes tomato juice, which I like. Sometimes orange juice, which I like. I’ll drink different things. But the Coke or Pepsi boosts you up a little.
It’s not just people who can’t find a job, or can’t fit in in society that struggle with depression sometimes.
