It’s hard to tell with these Internet startups if they’re really interested in building companies or if they’re just interested in the money. I can tell you, though: If they don’t really want to build a company, they won’t luck into it. That’s because it’s so hard that if you don’t have a passion, you’ll give up.
Money doesn’t make you happy. I now have $50 million but I was just as happy when I had $48 million.
I think the person who takes a job in order to live – that is to say, for the money – has turned himself into a slave.
Money is the root of all evil, and yet it is such a useful root that we cannot get on without it any more than we can without potatoes.
