Stripe Quotations

Question everything. Every stripe, every star, every word spoken. Everything.
Ernest Gaines

After leaving school, I travelled around Europe for about six months. In Denmark, I thought that was my chance to get an amazing haircut, so I went to what I thought was a great hairdresser. It turned out to be the car wash of hairdressers, and I walked out sporting yet another pudding bowl, but this time with a stripe bleached down the centre.
Becki Newton

Our goal definitely isn't to sell Stripe.

Stripe is building payment infrastructure for the Web, so we make it easy to accept credit cards online. Before Stripe, the way you'd do this is using the legacy banking structure. It was slow, it was complex, it was expensive. It had this very chilling effect on e-commerce.
John Collison

There's nothing in the middle of the road but a yellow stripe and dead armadillos.
