#Quote
1[Giving a commencement speech to students at the University of Wisconsin in 2003] Nobody else is paying as much attention to your failures as you are. You're the only ones who are obsessed with the importance of your own life. To everyone else, it's just a blip on the radar screen, so just move on.
2My problem is that I like technology, but I always have to ask myself, 'Now wait a minute, will I actually have any use for this?'
3The most frustrating thing is that I want to always buy the best thing, the thing that does the most stuff.
4People keep asking if I believe in ghosts. If you're talking about poltergeists and weird, supernatural phenomena, not really.
5My greatest thrill was the day Mad magazine spoofed 'Ghost.'
6But in terms of satire and comedy, our biggest and earliest influence was Mad magazine.
7All those zany comedies have instilled a sense of pace in me.
8It's Moore's Law, everything will be obsolete in 10 years - I'll be obsolete in 10 years!
9I love technology, and I love new gadgets. I can no longer figure out how to use any of them, but I love them.
