July 23, 2014 - Written By Justin Diaz

Google may be a well known entity when it comes to world of internet connected things, but to many, the men behind the whole of what Google is, are largely just two guys that created a search engine and cultivated it into the huge company that it is today. Google is part of many, many things that we use on a daily basis though, even more than people may realize, thanks to the popular Android OS. They’re what makes it possible to find just about any information we need as quickly as we’re able these days, and they operate one of the world’s most popular Social networks as well as one of if not the most popular email service.

Google came from humble beginnings though and both founders have more aspirations than just data and search algorithms. Both Larry Page and Sergey Brin have ideas for a better future for everyone, and they have many different ideas and plans to help improve the way we live and interact. Sergey Brin is one half of the Google enterprise, and these quotes provide a look at how things got started and perhaps may even inspire some of you.
