"Looking back, I think my biggest accomplishment was starting the venture capital business if, in fact, I did that. If I have to go down in history for doing one thing, I guess that’s it. But success for me is in helping to build great companies. That’s how I get my kicks. Having money is nice. Being able to travel and do the things I want to do is all very nice. But I would give up some of that for the feeling of success, of having created jobs. I helped create jobs. I helped create companies. I helped create wealth for a lot of people. That gives me a great deal of satisfaction."
- Arthur Rock, One of the America's first VC
