"Who the fuck goes to law school to become a civil servant?"

"I was gonna give, like, $100,000 to this charity, right? And I don't get one phone call or one thank-you letter. And then I find out that [the charity] is misspending funds. So I said, 'Fuck it, I'll misspend the money on myself.'"
His net worth:
"I've gone from being worth nothing to, like, $200 million in 10 years. Do the math: That's like twice what Barry Bonds makes."
"The university system is oppressive, it's useless. They don't teach you how to deal with liars and fuckers, and that's 99 percent of business."

"I've thought about it, but I think my time is better spent building a dynasty."
