Jeff Bezos, founder and CEO of Amazon, is a billionaire who's had an amazing life and career: 

He's building a mysterious 10,000-year clock in a West Texas cave.

Earlier this year, he bought the Washington Post for $250 million.

You wouldn't want to get on his bad side.

Bezos achieved so much success by being incredibly smart and business savvy, and so we rounded up some quotes that show his genius. 

On complacency: "A company shouldn't get addicted to being shiny, because shiny doesn't last."


On innovation: "I think frugality drives innovation, just like other constraints do. One of the only ways to get out of a tight box is to invent your way out."


On progress: "If you're competitor-focused, you have to wait until there is a competitor doing something. Being customer-focused allows you to be more pioneering."


On developing company culture: "Part of company culture is path-dependent—it's the lessons you learn along the way."
