Just in case, why do we need inspiration? As you probably know, success is 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration. So here is that 1%. ;)
Quotes On Money & Business
- “Your most unhappy customers are your greatest source of learning.”
- “This is a fantastic time to be entering the business world, because business is going to change more in the next 10 years than it has in the last 50.”
- “Whether it’s Google or Apple or free software, we’ve got some fantastic competitors and it keeps us on our toes.”
- “If you give people tools, [and they use] their natural ability and their curiosity, they will develop things in ways that will surprise you very much beyond what you might have expected.”
- “Intellectual property has the shelf life of a banana.”
- “There’s only one trick in software, and that is using a piece of software that’s already been written.”
- “It’s not manufacturers trying to rip anybody off or anything like that. There’s nobody getting rich writing software that I know of.”
- “Great organizations demand a high level of commitment by the people involved.”
- “About three million computers get sold every year in China, but people don’t pay for the software. Someday they will, though. As long as they are going to steal it, we want them to steal ours. They’ll get sort of addicted, and then we’ll somehow figure out how to collect sometime in the next decade.”
- “Make it just like a Mac.”
- “At Microsoft there are lots of brilliant ideas, but the image is that they all come from the top — I’m afraid that’s not quite right.”

- “In three years, every product my company makes will be obsolete. The only question is whether we will make them obsolete or somebody else will.”

- “People always fear change. People feared electricity when it was invented, didn’t they?”
- “Every day were saying, ‘How can we keep this customer happy?’ How can we get ahead in innovation by doing this, because if we don’t, somebody else will.”
- “It’s easier for our software to compete with Linux when there’s piracy than when there’s not.”
- “Microsoft has had clear competitors in the past. It’s a good thing we have museums to document that.”
- “If something is expensive to develop, and somebody’s not going to get paid, it won’t get developed. So you decide: Do you want software to be written, or not?”
- “If you show people the problems and you show people the solutions they will be moved to act.”
- “If you can’t make it good, at least make it look good.”

- “Intellectual property has the shelf life of a banana.”
- “Microsoft is not about greed. It’s about innovation and fairness.”

- “If you mess up, it’s not your parents’ fault, so don’t whine about your mistakes, learn from them.”
- “Before you were born, your parents weren’t as boring as they are now. They got that way from paying your bills, cleaning your clothes and listening to you talk about how cool you thought you are. So before you save the rain forest from the parasites of your parent’s generation, try delousing the closet in your own room.”

Bill Gates Quotes On Computing & Technology
- “Like almost everyone who uses e-mail, I receive a ton of spam every day. Much of it offers to help me get out of debt or get rich quick. It would be funny if it weren’t so irritating.”
- “I think it’s fair to say that personal computers have become the most empowering tool we’ve ever created. They’re tools of communication, they’re tools of creativity, and they can be shaped by their user.”
- “The Internet is becoming the town square for the global village of tomorrow.”
- “We are not even close to finishing the basic dream of what the PC can be.”
- “When the PC was launched, people knew it was important.”
- “The great thing about a computer notebook is that no matter how much you stuff into it, it doesn’t get bigger or heavier.”
- “To create a new standard, it takes something that’s not just a little bit different; it takes something that’s really new and really captures people’s imagination — and the Macintosh, of all the machines I’ve ever seen, is the only one that meets that standard.”
- “When you want to do your homework, fill out your tax return, or see all the choices for a trip you want to take, you need a full-size screen.”
- “The advance of technology is based on making it fit in so that you don’t really even notice it, so it’s part of everyday life.”
- “The Internet will help achieve “friction free capitalism” by putting buyer and seller in direct contact and providing more information to both about each other.”
- “I’ve always loved digging into the science and math behind my work. At Microsoft, I got deep into computer science. At the foundation, it’s computer science plus biology, chemistry, agronomy, and more. I’ll spend hours talking to a researcher or an expert, and then I’ll go home, dying to tell Melinda what I’ve learned. I can’t imagine a better way to spend the bulk of my time.”
