A simple search will give you hundreds of motivational quotes, mostly from the greatest people who ever lived. Albert Einstein, Thomas Edison, Walt Disney. But for this list we’re taking inspiration from people a little closer to home — the people behind some of the most successful technology that we use today. Facebook, Google, Apple. In pictures: here’s a list of quotes on success, failure, taking risks, working hard, and pursuing your passion from the successful people in tech.
Of course, success can mean different things to different people. In his eloquent TED Talk on people’s ideas of success and failure, Philosopher Alain de Botton said:
“Let’s make sure our ideas of success are our own, that we are truly the authors of our own ambitions.”
And that, we think, is the most important thing.
