On being a woman... and the first woman in important roles:
Logan: In a lot of things that you've done, you are the first woman. Does it matter to you? Is it important?
Lagarde: What matter to me is that I am not the last one.
On what is important in life:
Lagarde: When my father passed away and then when later on I gave birth, those are sort of ground-breaking experiences that put everything else into perspective. You know, when I sit in meetings and things are very tense and people take things extremely seriously and they invest a lot of their ego, I sometimes think to myself, "Come on, you know, there's life and there's death and there is love." And all of that ego business is nonsense compared to that.
