„When I started Oracle, what I wanted to do was to create an environment where I would enjoy working.“

Smithsonian Institution Oral and Visual Histories, Oral History Interview with Lawrence Ellison (24 October 1995) http://americanhistory.si.edu/collections/comphist/le1.html.
Kontext: When I started Oracle, what I wanted to do was to create an environment where I would enjoy working. That was my primary goal. Sure, I wanted to make a living. I certainly never expected to become rich, certainly not this rich. I mean, rich does not even describe this. This is surreal.

I do not want propaganda and publicity, but I do want love and honesty. If you cannot live the life of love and honesty, you should stop working for me.

„I feel that after working a long time, I’ve really learned how to do what I do. I enjoy it.“

—  Karl Shapiro Poet, essayist 1913 - 2000

Paris Review interview (1986)
Kontext: I feel that after working a long time, I’ve really learned how to do what I do. I enjoy it. I don’t think there’s anything more satisfying than turning out a good stanza or a good piece of prose. And when you’re satisfied enough, you want to show it to other people. That’s called publication.
