And coming back to the car, I always used to say that the car is like your mother-in-law: you have to have good relationship with her, but she cannot command your life. So, when the only woman in your life is your mother-in-law, you have a problem.

And the children, we teach during six months how to separate their garbage. And after, the children teach their parents. And now we have 70 percent — since 20 years, it's the highest rate of separation of garbage in the world. Seven zero. (Applause) So teach the children.
