Traditionally, at this time of year, I (Managing Partner Mike Edelhart) put together a list of “Quotes to Entrepreneur By.” This year, it comes in two parts, AI and human. In this version, I asked Microsoft’s GPT iteration to share 20 quotes it felt would be helpful to entrepreneurs. Here is what it came up with:

“The only thing that is constant is change.”
— Heraclitus

“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.” — Aristotle

“The greatest wealth is to live content with little.”
— Plato

“It is not that we have a short time to live, but that we waste a lot of it.”
— Seneca

“The unexamined life is not worth living.”
— Socrates

“The key is to keep company only with people who uplift you, whose presence calls forth your best.”
— Epictetus

“The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing.”
— Socrates

“The mind is everything; what you think, you become.”
— Buddha

“The only way to do great work is to love what you do.”
— Steve Jobs

“The only source of knowledge is experience.”
— Albert Einstein

“The best way to predict the future is to invent it.”
— Alan Kay

“The only limit to our realization of tomorrow will be our doubts of today.”
— Franklin D. Roosevelt

“The only thing worse than being blind is having sight but no vision.”
— Helen Keller

“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”
— Edmund Burke

“The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.”
— Franklin D. Roosevelt

“The only thing standing between you and your goal is the bullshit story you keep telling yourself as to why you can’t achieve it.”
— Jordan Belfort

“The only thing that stands between a person and what they want in life is the will to try it and the faith to believe it’s possible.”
— Rich DeVos

“The only thing that makes life unfair is the delusion that it should be fair.” — Steve Maraboli

“The only thing you can control is your own mind.”
— Napoleon Hill

“Know thyself.”
— Socrates

An interesting, eclectic list. Hopefully, you found something here you can use in your own explorations as you navigate the entrepreneurial world.

It’s fascinating to see the difference between what GPT determines as inspiring and what our actual team finds inspiring. To see what my team of humans came up with when given the same task, read “Quotes to Entrepreneur By: Human Edition!”
