  • 4. In the Beginning “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” -- Mark Twain Photo by: Geishaboy500
  • 5. Past “Failure” as the Basis for Present Success “I’ve missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.” --Michael Jordan Photo by: Geishaboy500
  • 6. Sources of Knowledge and Know-How “I have never let my schooling interfere with my education.” -- Mark Twain “An entrepreneur tends to bite off a little more than he can chew hoping he’ll quickly learn how to chew it.” -- Roy Ash Photo by: Geishaboy500
  • 7. Advice for the Audience “Timing, perseverance, and ten years of trying will eventually make you look like an overnight success.” -- Biz Stone Photo by: Geishaboy500
  • 8. Visions for the Future “We [Google] are currently not planning on conquering the world.” --Sergey Brin “I like to pride myself on thinking pretty long term, but not that long term.” --Mark Zuckerberg Photo by: Geishaboy500
