Sometimes entrepreneurs need a little advice, so here are some inspirational quotes from 18 of the wealthiest people in history. Here are our top 5 favorite inspirational quotes.

According to Mark Zuckerberg, chairman and CEO of Facebook, "The biggest risk is not taking any risk... In a world that is changing really quickly, the only strategy is guaranteed to fail is not taking risks."

According to Mark Cuban, owner of the Dallas Mavericks, "One thing we can all control is effort. Put in the time to become an expert in whatever you're doing. It will give you advantage because most people don't do this. The beauty of success, whether it's finding the girl of your dreams, the right job or financial success, is that it doesn't matter how many times you have failed, you only have to be right once."

According to Oprah Winfrey, an entrepreneur, "Do the one thing you think you cannot do. Fail at it. Try again. The only people who never tumble are those who never mount the hire wire. This is your moment. Own it."

Jeff Bezos, founder of Amazon, "I think frugality drives innovation, just like other constraints do. One of the only ways to get out of a tight box is to invent your way out."

Elon Musk, the founder of Paypal and Tesla Motors, "I think it is a mistake to hire huge numbers of people to get a complicated job done. Numbers will never compensate for talent in getting the right answer (two people who don't know something are no better than none), will. Tend to slow progress, and will make the task incredibly expensive."
