Famous Quotes by Jeff Bezos

Life's too short to hang out with people who aren't resourceful.

  • If you double the number of experiments you do per year you’re going to double your inventiveness. 
  • Life’s too short to hang out with people who aren’t resourceful.
  • What we need to do is always lean into the future; when the world changes around you and when it changes against you – what used to be a tail wind is now a head wind – you have to lean into that and figure out what to do because complaining isn’t a strategy.
  • We’ve had three big ideas at Amazon that we’ve stuck with for 18 years, and they’re the reason we’re successful: Put the customer first. Invent. And be patient.
  • There are two kinds of companies, those that work to try to charge more and those that work to charge less. We will be the second.
  • One of the things we don’t do very well at Amazon is a me-too product offering. So when I look at physical retail stores, it’s very well served, the people who operate physical retail stores are very good at it, the question we would always have before we would embark on such a thing is: What’s the idea? What would we do that would be different? How would it be better? We don’t want to just do things because we can do them…we don’t want to be redundant.
  • If everything you do needs to work on a three-year time horizon, then you’re competing against a lot of people. But if you’re willing to invest on a seven-year time horizon, you’re now competing against a fraction of those people, because very few companies are willing to do that.
  • I like treating things as if they’re small, you know Amazon even though it is a large company, I want it to have the heart and spirit of a small one.
  • Market leadership can translate directly to higher revenue, higher profitability, greater capital velocity, and correspondingly stronger returns on invested capital
