Famous Bill Gates quotes
1) If you show people the problems and you show people the solutions they will be moved to act.
2) 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.
3) Success is a lousy teacher. It seduces smart people into thinking they can't lose.

7) It's fine to celebrate success but it is more important to heed the lessons of failure.
8) In terms of doing things I take a fairly scientific approach to why things happen and how they happen. I don't know if there's a god or not, but I think religious principles are quite valid.
9) We always overestimate the change that will occur in the next two years and underestimate the change that will occur in the next ten. Don't let yourself be lulled into inaction.

13) 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 exciting.
14) If I'd had some set idea of a finish line, don't you think I would have crossed it years ago?
15) People always fear change. People feared electricity when it was invented, didn't they?
16) Instead of buying airplanes and playing around like some of our competitors, we've rolled almost everything back into the company.
17) Whether it's Google or Apple or free software, we've got some fantastic competitors and it keeps us on our toes.
18) Life is not divided into semesters. You don't get summers off and very few employers are interested in helping you find yourself.
19) It's not manufacturers trying to rip anybody off or anything like that. There's nobody getting rich writing software that I know of.
20) Be nice to nerds. Chances are you'll end up working for one.
21) People feared coal, they feared gas-powered engines... There will always be ignorance, and ignorance leads to fear. But with time, people will come to accept their silicon masters.
22) If you can't make it good, at least make it look good.
23) The first rule of any technology used in a business is that automation applied to an efficient operation will magnify the efficiency. The second is that automation applied to an inefficient operation will magnify the inefficiency.
24) Your most unhappy customers are your greatest source of learning.
25) Television is not real life. In real life people actually have to leave the coffee shop and go to jobs.
