Great innovative and success quotes of Bill Gates :

 These proposals will have a chilling effect on innovation in the high technology industry, ... Microsoft could never have developed Windows under these rules. Looking forward, this kind of regulation would make it impossible for Microsoft to develop the next generation of great software.

It's pretty amazing to go from a world where computers were unheard of and very complex to where they're a tool of everyday life. That was the dream that I wanted to make come true, and in a large part it's unfolded as I'd expected. You can argue about advertising business models or which networking protocol would catch on or which screen sizes would be used for which things. There are less robots now than I would have guessed.

Success is a lousy teacher. It seduces smart people into thinking they can't lose.

Eradications are special... Zero is a magic number. You either do what it takes to get to zero and you're glad you did it; or you get close, give up, and it goes back to where it was before, in which case you wasted all that credibility, activity, money that could have been applied to other things.

So we were working together. The schedules were uncertain. The quality was uncertain. The price. When Steve first came up, it was going to be a lot cheaper computer than it ended up being, but that was fine.

Playing Bridge is a pretty old-fashioned thing in a way that I really like... I do the dishes every night--other people volunteer, but I like the way I do it.

There's been a lot of misinformation put out by the competitors, ... We will always stand for the PC industry -- high volume, low prices, rapid innovation. People who stand against the PC industry, I don't think they'll be successful.

You have to have a certain realism that government is a pretty­ blunt instrument and without the constant attention of highly qualified people with the right metrics, it will fall into not doing things very well.

We had really bet our future on the Macintosh being successful, and then, hopefully, graphics interfaces in general being successful, but first and foremost, the thing that would popularize that being the Macintosh.

I think it's fair to say that personal computers have become the most empowering tool we've ever created. They're tools of communication, they're tools of creativity, and they can be shaped by their user.

It's no exaggeration to say that the kind of innovation going on in Israel is critical to the future of the technology business,

Steve and I were very different. But we were both good at picking people. We were both hyperenergetic and worked super ­hard. We were close partners in doing the original Mac software, and that was an amazing thing, because we had more people working on it than Apple did. But we were very naive. Steve promised us this was going to be this $499 machine, and next thing we knew, it was $1,999. Anyway, the Mac project was an incredible experience.

Great innovation quotes : Bill Gates

I'm excited by the possibilities I see for medicine, for education and of course for technology, ... And I believe that through our natural inventiveness, creativity and willingness to solve tough problems, we're going to make some amazing achievements in all these areas in my lifetime.

Most of our competitors were one-product wonders... They would do their one product, but never get their engineering sorted out.They did not think about software in this broad way. They did not think about tools or efficiency. They would therefore do one product, but would not renew it to get it to the next generation.

We are embarking on the richest series of product releases in our company's 30-year history. Beyond the opportunities this presents for our customers and partners, these new live offerings represent an incredibly powerful way of enabling customers to more quickly access and benefit from the innovations being developed by our product teams.

Great innovation quotes -  William Henry "Bill" Gates III :

 The most important    work I got a chance   to be involved in, no matter what I do, is the personal computer. 

You know, that's what I grew up, in my teens, my 20s, my 30s, you know, I even knew not to get married until later because I was so obsessed with it. That's my life's work.

It's fine to celebrate success, but it is more important to heed the lessons of failure.

You know, development sometimes is viewed as a project in which you give people things and nothing much happens, which is perfectly valid, but if you just focus on that, then you'd also have to say that venture capital is pretty stupid, too. Its hit rate is pathetic. But occasionally, you get successes, you fund a Google or something, and suddenly venture capital is vaunted as the most amazing field of all time. Our hit rate in development is better than theirs, but we should strive to make it better.

Owning a plane is a guilty pleasure. Warren Buffett called his The Indefensible. I do get to a lot of places for foundation work I wouldn't be able to go to without it.

Great innovation quotes :

How ironic that in the United States -- where freedom and innovation are core values -- these regulators are trying to punish an American company that has worked hard and successfully to deliver on these values,

I'm certainly well taken care of in terms of food and clothes. ... Money has no utility to me beyond a certain point. Its utility is entirely in building an organization and getting the resources out to the poorest in the world.

We all need people who will give us feedback. That’s how we improve.

Fine, go to those Bangalore Infosys centers, but just for the hell of it, go three miles aside and go look at the guy living with no toilet, no running water... The world is not flat and PCs are not, in the hierarchy of human needs, in the first five rungs.

Everyone needs a coach.  It doesn’t matter whether you’re a basketball player,  a tennis player, a gymnast or a bridge player.

The world rarely sees someone who has had the profound impact Steve has had, the effects of which will be felt for many generations to come. For those of us lucky enough to get to work with him, it's been an insanely great honor. I will miss Steve immensely.

Great innovation quotes :

We’ve got to put a lot of money into changing behavior.
The most amazing philanthropists are people who are actually making a significant sacrifice.

 I have been struck again and again by how important measurement is to improving human condition.

 Don’t compare yourself with anyone in the world. If you do so, you are insulting yourself.

It's an elusive concept. There's a certain sharpness, an ability to absorb new facts. To walk into a situation, have something explained to you and immediately say, 'Well, what about this?' To ask an insightful question. To absorb it in real time. A capacity to remember. To relate to domains that may not seem connected at first. A certain creativity that allows people to be effective.

I believe in innovation and that the way you get innovation is you fund research and you learn the basic facts.
If I think something's a waste of time or inappropriate, I don't wait to point it out. I say it right away. It's real time. So you might hear me say 'That's the dumbest idea I have ever heard' many times during a meeting.

Great innovation quotes -  William Henry "Bill" Gates III : Our modern lifestyle is not a political creation. Before 1700, everybody was poor as hell.

Life was short and brutish. It wasn't because we didn't have good politicians; we had some really good politicians. But then we started inventing--electricity, steam engines, microprocessors, understanding genetics and medicine and things like that.

It's possible, you can never know, that the universe exists only for me. If so, it's sure going well for me, I must admit.

Microsoft has had clear competitors in the past. It's a good thing we have museums to document that.

Your most unhappy customers are your greatest source of learning.

You know, even when we wrote down at Microsoft in 1975, 'a computer on every desk and in every home,' we didn't realize, Oh, we'll have to be a big company. Every time, I thought, 'Oh, God, can we double in size?
