"I think the world's best companies are built by fanatics. [That means that you] work day and night. Sort of don't worry about the possibility of failure. Every setback is just something to work a little bit harder at doing. And you really know what you're trying to achieve.... And you're going to change your strategy until you can get that to happen." --Bill Gates
