Peter Thiel has most recently been quoted in an article called Billionaire investor Peter Thiel: Silicon Valley’s monopoly on big growth tech companies is over. Peter Thiel said, “I have been investing in the technology space – entrepreneur and investor over the past 20 years in Silicon Valley – and within the area of IT, it has for the last 10, 15 years in the US and the world been extremely centered on Silicon Valley. I think there are a lot of reasons for that, but the question is, Where is the growth going to happen the next 10 years?' And what I would tend to think is that it will be more diversified from just Silicon Valley.”. Peter Thiel has been quoted a grand total of 57 times in 35 articles.

Peter Thiel quotes

Mar 13 2017 - Immigration

I think a lot of the voters who vote for Trump take Trump seriously but not literally. And so when they hear things like the Muslim comment or the wall comment or things like that, the question is not 'Are you going to build a wall like the Great Wall of China?' or, you know, How exactly are you going to enforce these tests?' What they hear is 'We're going to have a saner, more sensible immigration policy., We're going to try to figure out how do we strike the right balance between costs and benefits.feedback

Mar 08 2017 - Facebook

If you hear these things, you should think fraud, and you should run away as fast as you can. Maybe what Facebook really cracked was real identity and how to bring that onto the internet. It was not like a 'Shark Tank' pitch meeting where it somehow this perfect pitch. It was just the perfect company. I think you have a perfect pitch when you have a bad company. ... And sometimes a perfect company doesn't need to have a terribly good pitch. So we were going to invest not matter what happened and we did.feedback

Mar 08 2017 - Bull market

There's a technological determinism story you can tell where this is the future and China will eventually buckle under and cave and eventually adopt all of these things. But then you might wonder, maybe this doesn't happen at all, and maybe it's possible for the internet to actually fragment and not to have this historical necessity to it. That's so 2005, it feels so dated. A decade ago, this was a group of people who were running the world. And now, it's just a group of people who messed up the world. We're now in a bull market in politics.feedback

Mar 08 2017 - Silicon Valley

I'm naturally inclined to think of it in those terms. There's something around globalization that's not been working that well. The internet was designed to survive a nuclear war, but even so, I think there are a lot of regulatory challenges that Silicon Valley will be facing from western Europe and elsewhere in the years ahead.feedback

Mar 08 2017 - Bull market

I'm not sure this is a good thing. But it is a fact that maybe politics is becoming more important, it's becoming more intense, the range of outcomes is becoming greater, and that we're in a world in which there's a bull market in politics that's getting started.feedback

Better to be a monopoly in a niche you are expert in, then a small company in a huge industry where competition will destroy you.feedback

Feb 01 2017

I am happy to say categorically that I have found no other country that aligns more with my view of the future than New Zealand.feedback

Feb 01 2017

In the course of pursing my international business opportunities, my travel, personal philosophical commitments and benefaction, I am happy to say categorically that I have found no other country that aligns more with my view of the future than New Zealand. It would give me great pride to let it be known that I am a New Zealand citizen.feedback

Jan 25 2017

Failure is massively overrated. You will think it failed for Reason 1, but it failed for Reasons 1 through 5. And so the next business you start will fail for Reason 2, and then for 3 and so on.feedback

Jan 25 2017

Most businesses fail for more than one reason. So when a business fails, you often don't learn anything at all because the failure was over-determined.feedback

Jan 25 2017

Globalization may end by accident or by terrible miscalculation: It may end by world war. Because there would be no winners in a new world war, every path away from globalization will end in catastrophe.feedback

Jan 20 2017

Just as much as it's about making America great, Trump's agenda is about making America a normal country. A normal country doesn't have a half-trillion-dollar trade deficit. A normal country doesn't fight five simultaneous undeclared wars. In a normal country, the government actually does its job.feedback

Jan 20 2017

No matter what happens in this election, what Trump represents isn't crazy and it's not going away.feedback

Jan 13 2017

We know what a smartphone looks like and does. It's not the fault of [Apple CEO] Tim Cook, but it's not an area where there will be any more innovation.feedback

Dec 21 2016 - Silicon Valley

We don't accept such incompetence in Silicon Valley, and we must not accept it from our government.feedback

The media takes Trump literally but not seriously; his supporters take him seriously but not literally.feedback

Nov 11 2016

[I]n a way I could understand why Trump was doing this. Romney tried the opposite strategy where he was extremely nice to everybody and just got rolled.feedback

Nov 11 2016

Well there is a big difference between campaigning and governing. And so certainly the hope is that Trump will be president of the entire country. That's certainly what he said in his acceptance speech last night and I am hopeful that he will be inclusive as a president.feedback

Nov 11 2016

I do think Trump is a fighter.feedback

Nov 09 2016

The media is always taking Trump literally. It never takes him seriously, but it always takes him literally.feedback

Nov 02 2016

It's less about revenge and more about specific deterrence. I saw Gawker pioneer a unique and incredibly damaging way of getting attention by bullying people even when there was no connection with the public interest.feedback

Nov 02 2016 - Sex

It is a great day for Terry Bollea and a great day for everyone's right to privacy.feedback

Oct 31 2016

The kind place where I worry about the most on a policy level is, do we get into more wars or not? I'm not sure if that's more of a temperament or more a matter of world view, but certainly I would worry much more in that with Hillary getting us into wars.feedback

Oct 31 2016

There are things that Trump said a decade ago that even he would absolutely no longer say today.feedback

Oct 31 2016

I really didn't think that there would be this sort of a visceral reaction. It's surprising to me that anybody would say that you're beyond the pale for taking a position that's held by half the country.feedback

Oct 31 2016 - Homosexuality

He will be quite expansive on gay rights.feedback

Oct 31 2016

Oct 31 2016

The truth is, no matter how crazy this election seems, it is less crazy than the condition of our country.feedback

Oct 30 2016

Obviously, I'll get some very tough questions about Trump. But I thought the best way to advance the discussion was not to have some completely contrived format. The future of this country depends on us engaging with the tough questions.feedback

Oct 30 2016

The line cannot or should not be at a point where you're excommunicating half the country. Some fringe views I hope we can tolerate. Some fringe views are beyond the pale.feedback

Oct 30 2016 - Silicon Valley

Most of the millennials have lower expectations than their baby boomer parents. Where I differ from others in Silicon Valley is in thinking that you can't fence yourself off. If it continues, it will ultimately be bad for everybody.feedback

Oct 30 2016 - Silicon Valley

I was surprised by the intensity. This is one of the few times I was involved in something that was not a fringe effort but was mainstream. Millions of people are backing Trump. I did not appreciate quite how polarizing the election would be in Silicon Valley and elsewhere.feedback

Oct 30 2016

It would be a mistake and inappropriate to instantly demonize Hillary and to try and sabotage her presidency.feedback

Oct 30 2016

There will be an important role for me and others to somehow play in speaking truth to power.feedback

Oct 15 2016 - Wall Street

Across the country, wages are flat. Americans get paid less today than 10 years ago. But health care and college tuition cost more every year. Meanwhile, Wall Street bankers inflate bubbles in everything from government bonds to Hillary Clinton's speaking fees. Our economy is broken. If you're watching me right now, you understand this better than any politician in Washington D.C.feedback

Aug 02 2016

When Donald Trump asks us to Make America Great Again, he's not suggesting a return to the past. He's running to lead us back to that bright future.feedback

Jul 22 2016

When I was a kid, the great debate was about how to defeat the Soviet Union, and we won. Now we are told that the great debate is about who gets to use which bathroom. This is a distraction from our real problems. Who cares?feedback

Jul 22 2016 - Homosexuality

I am proud to be gay. I am proud to be a Republican, but most of all I am proud to be an American.feedback

Jul 22 2016 - Libya

We don't need to see Hillary Clinton's deleted emails: her incompetence is in plain sight. She pushed for a war in Libya, and today it's a training ground for ISIS. On this most important issue, Donald Trump is right. It's time to end the era of stupid wars and rebuild our country.feedback

Jul 21 2016

I've always had this really strong sense that death was a terrible, terrible thing. I think that's somewhat unusual. Most people end up compartmentalizing, and they are in some weird mode of denial and acceptance about death, but they both have the result of making you very passive. I prefer to fight it.feedback

Jul 20 2016

The 1920s were the last decade in American history during which one could be genuinely optimistic about politics.feedback

May 26 2016 - Sex

I figured it would eventually come out. It's not for me to decide what happens to Gawker. If America rallies around Gawker and decides we want more people to be outed and more sex tapes to be posted without consent, then they will find a way to save Gawker, and I can't stop it.feedback
