A Quote by Kim Konopka on death, overcoming obstacles, life, leaving a legacy, legacy, remembrance, and strength

I shall die in my boots.
Kick open the saloon doors
Of Heaven or Hell,
Lasso the darkest hombre
And shoot any hat in the house
Who doesn't buy me a drink.

A Quote by Sergey Brin on legacy, business, and philanthropy

In terms of being remembered, I think I want to make the world a better place. That's a pretty generic answer, but I mean it in several ways. One is through Google, the company, in terms of giving people access to information. I'm sure I will do other endeavors in terms of technologies and businesses. The second is just through philanthropy. I don't have a significant amount of wealth beyond that on paper right now, but I hope that I have the opportunity to direct resources to the right places. I think that is the most important thing to me. I don't think my quality of life is really going to improve that much with more money.
