One of the biggest challenges we had in the first decade
was not that many people had personal computers.
There weren't that many people to sell to,
and it was hard to identify them.
- Steve Case

You have to get along with people, but you also have
to recognize that the strength of a team is different

I think the support of the other team at AOL and everybody's

I do think actually in this case the government does
get credit for funding some of the basic research.

I enjoyed high school and college, and I think I learned a lot,
but that was not really my focus.
My focus was on trying to figure out what businesses to start.

And, in fact, no one has yet determined which side
of the road we're supposed to be on.

I thought it would happen quickly.

If you're doing something new you've got to have a vision.
You've got to have a perspective.
You've got to have some north star you're aiming for,
and you just believe somehow you'll get there,
which kind of gets to the passion point.
- Steve Case

So you have to force yourself out of a comfort zone

processing or storing recipes or playing games or what have you.
- Steve Case

For better or worse, that is true with any new innovation,
certainly any new technological innovation.
There's many good things that come out of it,
but also some bad things.
All you can do is try to maximize the good stuff and minimize the bad stuff.
- Steve Case

And I'd say one of the great lessons I've learned over
the past couple of decades,
from a management perspective, is that really when you come down to it,
it really is all about people and all about leadership.
- Steve Case

so I think that the expectation was probably for me

I was more interested in building things.
- Steve Case

And what we did with this new company in 1985 is we

- Steve Case

I have always been regretting that
I was not as wise as the day I was born.
- Henry David Thoreau

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves,
Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God.
Your playing small does not serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking
so that other people won't feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine, as children do.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine,
we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear,
our presence automatically liberates others.
- Marianne Williamson

Men are born to succeed, not to fail.
- Henry David Thoreau

Children are born innocent.
Before they are domesticated they live in the moment,

Live your life so that when you die,
the world cries and you rejoice.

Everyone is born a genius,
but the process of living de-geniuses them.

Friends are born, not made.
- Henry Adams

O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek
to be consoled as to console;
to be understood as to understand;
to be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive;
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
- St. Francis of Assisi

Love is what we were born with.
Fear is what we learned here.
Miracles occur naturally as expressions of love.
The real miracle is the love that inspires them.
In this sense everything that comes from love is a miracle.
- Marianne Williamson

We are born princes, and the civilizing process makes us frogs.
- Publilius Syrus

That I was born to this circle - I am blessed.
That I choose to stand in this circle - I am proud.
- Mary Anne Radmacher

And when our baby stirs and struggles to be born
it compels humility: what we began is now its own.
- Margaret Mead

You are a child of God.
Your playing small does not serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking
so that other people won't feel insecure about you.
We were born to manifest the glory of God that is within us.
- Marianne Williamson

We're born alone, we live alone, we die alone.
Only through our love and friendship can we
create the illusion for the moment that we're not alone.
- Orson Welles

I was born on the prairies where the wind blew free
and there was nothing to break the light of the sun.
I was born where there were no enclosures.
- Geronimo

Don't limit a child to your own learning,
for he was born in another time.
- Rabindranath Tagore

Each friend represents a world in us,
a world possibly not born until they arrive,
and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born.
- Anais Nin

I will greet this day with love in my heart.
And how will I do this?
Henceforth will I look on all things with love and be born again.
I will love the sun for it warms my bones;
yet I will love the rain for it cleanses my spirit.
I will love the light for it shows me the way;
yet I will love the darkness for it shows me the stars.
I will welcome happiness as it enlarges my heart;
yet I will endure sadness for it opens my soul.
I will acknowledge rewards for they are my due;
yet I will welcome obstacles for they are my challenge.
- Og Mandino

I do not fear death.
I had been dead for billions and billions
of years before I was born,
and had not suffered the slightest inconvenience from it.
- Mark Twain

Born to be wild - live to outgrow it.

and some to advise.

Most people think that anger is an instinctive response,
and that some people were just born with the temperament
to get angrier faster than others.
That statement is only half right.
Anger is an instinctive response.
We respond to an affront with anger essentially instantaneously -
much too quickly for conscious thought to be called upon.
But the instinct of the anger response
can be trained through conscious repetition,
visualization, and coaching.
Visualization is seeing the event
we desire to master in our mind's eye.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie
