Obviously everyone wants to be successful, but I want to be looked back on as being very innovative, very trusted and ethical and ultimately making a big difference in the world.
Solving big problems is easier than solving little problems.
I feel there’s an existential angst among young people. I didn’t have that. They see enormous mountains, where I only saw one little hill to climb.
Once you go from 10 people to 100, you already don’t know who everyone is. So at that stage you might as well keep growing, to get the advantages of scale.
When I was growing up, I always knew I’d be in the top of my class in math, and that gave me a lot of self-confidence.
I would like to see anyone be able to achieve their dreams, and that’s what this organization does.
We saw that a thousand results weren’t necessarily as useful as 10 good ones.
We believed we could build a better search. We had a simple idea that not all pages are created equal. Some are more important.
Ultimately you want to have the entire world’s knowledge connected directly to your mind.
To me, this is about preserving history and making it available to everyone.
If I were seriously interested in something important to me, I wouldn’t just click on the first search result, read it and take it as God’s word.
We do lots of Stuff. The only way you are going to have success is to have lots of failures first.
We wouldn’t survive if people didn’t trust us.
