  • 27. Quotable Quotes • Be nice to nerds. Chances are you’ll end up working for one. • I really had a lot of dreams when I was a kid, and I think a great deal of that grew out of the fact that I had a chance to read a lot. • If you can't make it good, at least make it look good. • Intellectual property has the shelf life of a banana. • Life is not fair; get used to it. • Success is a lousy teacher. It seduces smart people into thinking they can't lose. • The Internet is becoming the town square for the global village of tomorrow. • Television is NOT real life. In real life people actually have to leave the coffee shop and go to jobs. • Life is not divided into terms. You don’t get summers off and very few employers are interested in helping you FIND YOURSELF. Do that on your own time. • Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity. Your grandparents had a different word for burger flipping: they called it opportunity. • If you mess up, it’s not your parents’ fault, so don’t whine about your mistakes, learn from them.
