Game-changing words

From a profile of Andre Agassi in today's Observer Sports Monthly, which retells how a champion remade himself as a man. It's a heart-stopping insight:

When you start out on the journey you think it's all about taking in experiences to fulfil yourself. But it's not. The greatest experience is changing someone else's experience of life. And once you realise that, it becomes your foundation, the ace in your pocket, who you are. It's the opposite of what you think it is. When you see the world through the lens of others, that's when you find yourself.
