Having you in my life made everything better

When I first saw you I fell in love, and you smiled because you knew
I like me a little bit more when i'm with you

I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work
A girl doesn't need anyone who doesn't need her

Be yourself; everyone else is already taken
I told you I'll be ready in FIVE minutes, stop calling me every half hour

I never make the same mistake twice. I make it five or six times, just to be sure

Text Quotes
My history is to find the next big thing early  (Mitch Kapor Quotes) The culmination of all of that was the decision to start a company, which became Lotus, to do a product, which became 1-2-3. By the time I reached that point it had been four years, and it felt like a lifetime, but really it was kind of evolutionary.  (Mitch Kapor Quotes) The critical thing in developing software is not the program, it’s the design. It is translating understanding of user needs into something that can be realized as a computer program.  (Mitch Kapor Quotes) People in the industry foresee a time in which, for many people, the only thing they’ll need on a computer is a browser.  (Mitch Kapor Quotes) Managerial and professional people hadn’t really used computers, hadn’t sat down at keyboards, until personal computers. Personal computers have a totally different feel.  (Mitch Kapor Quotes) People are hungry for community. They’re hungry for meaning in a society that is oriented around the production and consumption of consumer goods.  (Mitch Kapor Quotes) In an economy where more and more value is in information - is in the bits, not the atoms, where bits can be copied essentially for free - any time you have that situation, economic schemes that rely on existing models of intellectual property laws for protection are going to do less and less well.  (Mitch Kapor Quotes) There’s a great deal of suspicion and misunderstanding about IT among practicing doctors. One hears things like, ‘I don’t want to be turned into a data entry clerk, and I don’t want some machine between me and my patients.’  (Mitch Kapor Quotes) Old ways of thinking die hard, particularly when they were weaned by legally enforced monopolies  (Mitch Kapor Quotes) In my case, having knocked around at different jobs helped me get a sense of what the world is actually like and also helped me get out of a cocoon.  (Mitch Kapor Quotes) We are living in an era of anxiety produced by computer and communications technology  (Mitch Kapor Quotes) Oakland’s time is coming. In fact, Oakland’s time is already here. Tech is coming to Oakland, and it’s terribly exciting.  (Mitch Kapor Quotes) The kind of products you envision as an entrepreneur is a function of your life experience  (Mitch Kapor Quotes) The Internet, the network of networks, is growing at an exponential pace. It’s growing so fast, in fact, nobody really knows how many people use the Internet.  (Mitch Kapor Quotes) I’m like George Lucas, bringing together a creative team that will come up with a unique, well-crafted product.  (Mitch Kapor Quotes) Today, in the Internet gold rush, so many people go into dot-com jobs right from school or even before finishing. Their motivation is understandable, but sometimes they just lack experience.  (Mitch Kapor Quotes) Fundly is at the dynamic intersection of high-growth technology startups, social entrepreneurship, and the exploding world of social media. Kapor Capital is proud to back this passionate team, their product, and Fundly’s impressive customer base.  (Mitch Kapor Quotes) I routinely failed to understand that ‘simple and straightforward’ would have been a much better product strategy for Lotus.  (Mitch Kapor Quotes) Before I started a company, I was an employee with a bad attitude. I was always felt like, bosses are stupid, and people weren’t well treated.  (Mitch Kapor Quotes) One of the perks of being the founder is that you get to build the company in your image  (Mitch Kapor Quotes) Life in cyberspace seems to be shaping up exactly like Thomas Jefferson would have wanted: founded on the primacy of individual liberty and a commitment to pluralism, diversity, and community.  (Mitch Kapor Quotes) When new technology in the classroom starts happening, some people get very excited and think of it as a panacea. It attracts very high amounts of money; it raises expectations, and those expectations aren’t met.  (Mitch Kapor Quotes) It’s illegitimate to talk about a post-scarcity Utopia without talking about questions of distribution. There have always been these Utopian predictions - ‘electricity too cheap to meter’ was the atomic promise of the 1950s.  (Mitch Kapor Quotes) Physicians today, as human beings, are not exempt from the perverse economic pressures created by fee-for-service regimes to see more patients for shorter appointments and order more tests and procedures. If the incentives were changed to pay to foster better health outcomes, I am convinced physician behavior would change over time.  (Mitch Kapor Quotes) Reversing the escalation of health care costs is going to need more than legislation, yet it can be done without imposing rationing, as critics of reform fear.  (Mitch Kapor Quotes) A typical medical practice is like an old-fashioned business which keeps all of its records on paper. It can probably track down any individual transaction if it needs to, but it’s basically helpless when it comes to overall measurements of performance. And that’s the big problem.  (Mitch Kapor Quotes) It became clear to me by 1984 that Microsoft was likely going to be the big winner in the PC software apps and operating system category, partly because of the dynamics of owning and controlling the operating system: that gave you enormous power, and I came to see Bill Gates was fierce competitor.  (Mitch Kapor Quotes) I give Bill Gates an A for vision because, as a business person and a strategist, he’s brilliant. His flaw is that his view is not informed by a humanistic or compassionate vision of how to make computers work for people.  (Mitch Kapor Quotes) I’m fascinated by management and organizations: how organizations get things done and how successful organizations are built and maintained, how they evolve as they grow from start-ups to small companies to medium companies to big companies.  (Mitch Kapor Quotes) I soon realized that the best thing I could do for the profession of human services was to get out of it.  (Mitch Kapor Quotes)
