#Quote
1 You never lose a dream. It just incubates as a hobby.
2 [on the expansion of Google's activities] I'm not proposing that we spend all of our money on speculative things. But we should be spending a commensurate amount with what normal types of companies spend on research and development and spend it on thing that are a little more long-term and a little more ambitious than people normally would. More like moon shots.
3 For me it was always unsatisfying if you look at companies that get very big and they're just doing one thing. Ideally, if you have more people and more resources, you can get more things solved. We've kind of always had that philosophy.
4 Big companies - and maybe even Google too - are not as good as we should be at starting these things up early enough so that it's really done by the time we need it to be a real business.
5 Part of his 2009 commencement speech: I had one of those dreams when I was 23. When I suddenly woke up, I was thinking, What if we could download the whole Web and just keep the links? And I grabbed a pen and started writing. Sometimes it is important to wake up and stop dreaming. I spent the middle of that night scribbling out the details and convincing myself it would work. Soon after, I told my adviser, Terry Winograd, it would take a couple of weeks to download the Web. He nodded knowingly, fully aware it would take much longer but wise enough to not tell me. The optimism of youth is often underrated. Amazingly, I had no thought of building a search engine. The idea wasn't even on the radar. But much later, we happened upon a better way of ranking Web pages to make a really great search engine and Google was born. When a really great dream shows up, grab it.
