A constantly updated list of the best quips by AngelList founder - Naval Ravikant

“Escape competition through authenticity.”

---

“All the benefits in life come from compound interest — money, relationships, habits — anything of importance.”

---

"The compound interest from many quick small iterations is greater than the compound interest from a few slow big iterations. Compound interest operates in most intellectual and social domains."

---

"Seek wealth, not money or status. Wealth is having assets that earn while you sleep. Money is how we transfer time and wealth. Status is your place in the social hierarchy."

---

"The reality is life is a single-player game. You’re born alone. You’re going to die alone. All of your interpretations are alone. All your memories are alone. You’re gone in three generations and nobody cares. Before you showed up, nobody cared. It’s all single-player."

---

"Become the best in the world at what you do. Keep redefining what you do until this is true."

---

"You will get rich by giving society what it wants but does not yet know how to get. At scale."

---

"The internet is the best school ever created. The best peers are on the Internet. The best books are on the Internet. The best teachers are on the Internet. The tools for learning are abundant. It’s the desire to learn that’s scarce."

---

“A fit body, a calm mind, a house full of love. These things cannot be bought — they must be earned.”

---

"Read what you love until you love to read."

---

"In an age of infinite leverage, judgement is the most important skill."

---

"Judgement requires experience, but can be built faster by learning foundational skills."

---

“People who try to look smart by pointing out obvious exceptions actually signal the opposite.”

---

"Learn to sell. Learn to build. If you can do both, you will be unstoppable."

---

"Doctors won’t make you healthy.

Nutritionists won’t make you slim.

Teachers won’t make you smart.

Gurus won’t make you calm.

Mentors won’t make you rich.

Trainers won’t make you fit.

Ultimately, you have to take responsibility. Save yourself."

---

“School, politics, sports, and games train us to compete against others. True rewards — wealth, knowledge, love, fitness, and equanimity — come from ignoring others and improving ourselves.”

---

“Don’t do things that you know are morally wrong. Not because someone is watching, but because you are. Self-esteem is just the reputation that you have with yourself.”

---

“Following your genuine intellectual curiosity is a better foundation for a career than following whatever is making money right now.”
