Today I want to share with you Top 15 Quotes by Bill Gates that will inspire and motivate you to start performing at your very peak.

But before I do that let me tell you few things about Bill Gates. Bill Gates was born on October 28, 1955. He grew up to become a multi-billionaire through his company called Microsoft Corporation, which he co-founded with Paul Allen.

While he was still at Harvard university, he predicted his financial future by telling his professor that he will become a Millionaire at 30 but as things worked out with him, he was able to become a Billionaire at 31 which is to mean, he made extra 999 million dollars beyond his expectation. (This is what Les Brown called landing among the stars while shooting for the moon).

As at September 2013, Bill Gates net worth was $72billion. As I write now he is still the highest Philantropist in the world. He gives out billions of dollars every year through the foundation he runs with his wife Melinda.
