Larry Page Quotes on Entrepreneurship & Google:

Invention is not enough. Tesla invented the electric power we use, but he struggled to get it out to people. You have to combine both things: invention and innovation focus, plus the company that can commercialize things and get them to people.

I think it is often easier to make progress on mega-ambitious dreams. Since no one else is crazy enough to do it, you have little competition. In fact, there are so few people this crazy that I feel like I know them all by first name.

The ultimate search engine would basically understand everything in the world, and it would always give you the right thing. And we’re a long, long way from that.

Basically, our goal is to organize the world’s information and to make it universally accessible and useful.

I do think there is an important artistic component in what we do. As a technology company I’ve tried to really stress that.

If we were motivated by money, we would have sold the company a long time ago and ended up on a beach.

Big companies have always needed and cooperated in areas where it made sense.

My job as a leader is to make sure everybody in the company has great opportunities, and that they feel they’re having a meaningful impact and are contributing to the good of society. As a world, we’re doing a better job of that. My goal is for Google to lead, not follow that.

It really matters whether people are working on generating clean energy or improving transportation or making the Internet work better and all those things. And small groups of people can have a really huge impact.

Especially in technology, we need revolutionary change, not incremental change.

You know what it’s like to wake up in the middle of the night with a vivid dream? And you know that if you don’t have a pencil and pad by the bed, it will be completely gone by the next morning. Sometimes it’s important to wake up and stop dreaming. When a really great dream shows up, grab it.

Lots of companies don’t succeed over time. What do they fundamentally do wrong? They usually miss the future.

“If you’re changing the world, you’re working on important things. You’re excited to get up in the morning.”

Lots of companies don’t succeed over time. What do they fundamentally do wrong? They usually miss the future. 
Many leaders of big organizations, I think, don’t believe that change is possible. But if you look at history, things do change, and if your business is static, you’re likely to have issues. 
Optimism is important. You have to be a little silly about the goals you are going to set. There is a phrase I learned in college called, ‘having a healthy disregard for the impossible.’ That is a really good phrase. You should try to do things that most people would not do.
It’s important that the company be a family that people feel that they’re part of the company, and that the company is like a family to them. When you treat people that way, you get better productivity.
You may think using Google’s great, but I still think it’s terrible.
I feel like my job as CEO is always to be pushing people ahead.
It is often easier to make progress on mega-ambitious dreams. … Since no one else is crazy enough to do it, you have little competition.
Excellence matters, and technology advances so fast that the potential for improvement is tremendous. So, since becoming CEO again, I’ve pushed hard to increase our velocity, improve our execution, and focus on the big bets that will make a difference in the world.
