The Relational Database Oracle CEO, Larry Ellison, is the 6th richest man in the world. His parents were disappointed by him dropping out from Medicine, first wife divorced him for lack of ambition.
He likes oceans, found Software his true love and big fortune.

Here,  he revealed his good friend Steve Jobs in 1995 refused his offer to help put Steve back to Apple as CEO with $5 billion “Buy Back”.

Key Take-Home Wisdom:

1. Crazy: If people say your idea is crazy, then it means 2 things:

Either:
It is a really great idea nobody knows it yet — like his building of impossible high-performance Relational Database Oracle.
Or,
You are really a fool.

2. Work not for money, but for a dream to help serve the world.
