+ 257 When I was growing up, I always knew I'd be in the top of my class in math, and that gave me a lot of self-confidence. Sergey Brin

+ 285 But the vast majority of books ever written are not accessible to anyone except the most tenacious researchers at premier academic libraries. Books written after 1923 quickly disappear into a literary black hole. Sergey Brin

+ 353 Obviously everyone wants to be successful, but I want to be looked back on as being very innovative, very trusted and ethical and ultimately making a big difference in the world. Sergey Brin

+ 327 I feel there's an existential angst among young people. I didn't have that. They see enormous mountains, where I only saw one little hill to climb. Sergey Brin

+ 274 I would like to see anyone be able to achieve their dreams, and that's what this organization does. Sergey Brin

+ 228 If Google Books is successful, others will follow. Sergey Brin

+ 255 We just want to have great people working for us. Sergey Brin

+ 272 We want Google to be the third half of your brain. Sergey Brin

+ 305 Google actually relies on our users to help with our marketing. We have a very high percentage of our users who often tell others about our search engine. Sergey Brin

+ 343 I wish there were a hundred services with which I could easily look at such a book; it would have saved me a lot of time, and it would have spared Google a tremendous amount of effort. Sergey Brin

+ 300 Once you go from 10 people to 100, you already don't know who everyone is. So at that stage you might as well keep growing, to get the advantages of scale. Sergey Brin

+ 361 The kind of environment that we developed Google in, the reason that we were able to develop a search engine, is the web was so open. Once you get too many rules, that will stifle innovation. Sergey Brin

+ 265 Today, if you want to access a typical out-of-print book, you have only one choice - fly to one of a handful of leading libraries in the country and hope to find it in the stacks. Sergey Brin

+ 296 We've seen a massive attack on the freedom of the web. Governments are realizing the power of this medium to organize people and they are trying to clamp down across the world, not just in places like China and North Korea; we're seeing bills in the United States, in Italy, all across the world.
