The Most Memorable CEO Quotes
Marissa Mayer, CEO of Yahoo
“I always did something that I was a little not ready to do. I think that, that is how you grow. When there’s a moment of ‘Wow, I’m not so sure that I can do this, and you push through those moments, it’s then that you have a breakthrough. Sometimes that’s a sign that something really great is about to happen. You’re about to grow and learn a lot more about yourself.”
Denise Morrison, CEO of Campbell Soup
“Balance suggests a perfect equilibrium. There is no such thing. That is a false expectation…. There are going to be priorities and dimensions of your life, how you integrate them is how you find true happiness.”
Pete Cashmore, CEO of Mashable
“We are really competing against ourselves, we have no control over how other people perform.”
Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook
“The question I ask myself like almost every day is, ‘Am I doing the most important thing I could be doing?’… Unless I feel like I’m working on the most important problem that I can help with, then I’m not going to feel good about how I’m spending my time. And that’s what this company is.”
Sam Walton, CEO of Walmart
“High expectations are the key to absolutely everything.”
Kevin Plank, CEO of Under Armour
“There’s an entrepreneur right now, scared to death, making excuses, saying, ‘It’s not the right time just yet.’ There’s no such thing as a good time. I started an apparel-manufacturing business in the tech-boom years. I mean, come on. Get out of your garage and go take a chance, and start your business.”
Tim Cook, CEO of Apple
“Life is fragile. We’re not guaranteed a tomorrow so give it everything you’ve got.”
Donald Trump, CEO of the Trump Organization
“Without passion, you don’t have any energy, and without energy, you simply have nothing”
Warren Buffett, CEO of Berkshire Hathaway
“Rule No. 1: Never lose money; Rule No. 2: Don’t forget Rule No. 1.”
David Sarnoff, CEO of RCA
“No man can be successful, unless he first loves his work.”
Ellen Kullman, CEO of Dupont
“It’s not about having a specific set time; both personal and professional lives are 24/7. It’s simply, more about making the right allocation to each one and recognizing that it’s going to be different every single day”
Michael Dell, CEO of DELL
“You don’t need to be a genius or a visionary, or even a college graduate for that matter, to be successful. You just need framework and a dream.”
L.A Reid, LAFACE records co-founder & CEO of Epic Records
“Find your passion, and it’s no longer work.”
Jeff Bezos, CEO of Amazon
“In business, what’s dangerous is not to evolve.”
Andrew Mason, CEO of Groupon
“I’ve been very lucky, from the beginning. I’ve found that as long as you’re fundamentally good – as long as you’re not being bad to people – people give you a lot of room to be yourself, because being yourself is being honest. And that’s what people want to see.”
Robert Iger, CEO of Walt Disney
“The heart and soul of a company is creativity and innovation.”
Frederick W Smith, CEO of Fedex
“Leaders get out in front and stay there by raising the standards by which they judge themselves – and by which they are willing to be judged.”
Jeremy Stoppelman, CEO of Yelp
“You have to be very nimble and very open minded. Your success is going to be very dependent on how your adapt.”
Larry Page, CEO of Google
“If you’re changing the world, you’re working on important things. You’re excited to get up in the morning.”
Jeffrey Immelt, CEO of General Electric
“Surviving a failure allows you more self confidence. Failing is a great learning tool, but it must be kept to an absolute minimum.”
Steve Ballmer, CEO of Microsoft
“Great companies with the way they work, first start with great leaders.”
Larry Ellison, CEO of Oracle
“When you innovate, you must prepare yourself for everybody to tell you that you’re nuts.”
Samuel R Allen, CEO of Deere
“Pessimists may be right in the end, but an optimist has a much better time getting there.”
Klaus Kleinfeld, CEO of Alcoa
“Only successful businesses can create and secure jobs.”
Steve Case, CEO of America Online
