"I just think people have a lot of fiction. But, you know, I mean, the real story of Facebook is just that we've worked so hard for all this time. I mean, the real story is actually probably pretty boring, right? I mean, we just sat at our computers for six years and coded."
"A computer once beat me at chess, but it was no match for me at kick boxing."Mark Zuckerberg on Emo Philips
"Computers are like Old Testament gods lots of rules and no mercy."Mark Zuckerberg on Joseph Campbell
"I think computer viruses should count as life. I think it says something about human nature that the only form of life we have created so far is purely destructive. We've created life in our own image."Mark Zuckerberg on Stephen Hawking
"Computers are useless. They can only give you answers."Mark Zuckerberg on Pablo Picasso
"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."Mark Zuckerberg on Bill Gates
"I mean, we've built a lot of products that we think are good, and will help people share photos and share videos and write messages to each other.

"I think a simple rule of business is, if you do the things that are easier first, then you can actually make a lot of progress."
"For the first time we're allowing developers who don't work at Facebook to develop applications just as if they were.

There are whole companies that are forming whose only product is a Facebook Platform application."
"I started the site when I was 19. I didn't know much about business back then."
"My goal was never to just create a company. A lot of people misinterpret that, as if I don't care about revenue or profit or any of those things. But what not being just a company means to me is not being just that - building something that actually makes a really big change in the world."
