Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don't be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of other's opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.
The only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it.

Be a yardstick of quality. Some people aren't use to an environment where excellence is expected.
We don't get a chance to do that many things, and every one should be really excellent. Because this is our life. Life is brief, and then you die, you know? And we’ve all chosen to do this with our lives. So it better be damn good. It better be worth it.
Do you want to spend the rest of your life selling sugared water or do you want a chance to change the world?
I'm the only person I know that's lost a quarter of a billion dollars in one year. It's very character-building.
