15 Inspirational quotes by Steve Jobs

Steve Jobs; one of the most inspiring person of the century left this world forever yesterday. But we will always remember him for his greatest innovations and most inspiring quotes. I feel that Apple Inc. will be directionless now and so will be the Google, Microsoft and other companies who used to copy Apple products. But I would like to thank Steven Paul Jobs for giving us products like iPhone, iPad, iMac, iOS, iPod and all the other iProducts.

Let’s remember Steve Jobs the man himself and some of the most inspiring and other best quotes by him:

  • “Be a yardstick of quality. Some people aren’t used to an environment where excellence is expected.”
  • “Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower.”
  • “Why join the navy if you can be a pirate?”
  • “That’s not what we think design is. It’s not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works”
  •  “I want to put a ding in the universe.”
  •  “I was worth over $1,000,000 when I was 23, and over $10,000,000 when I was 24, and over $100,000,000 when I was 25, and it wasn’t that important because I never did it for the money.”
  • Here’s to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes… the ones who see things differently — they’re not fond of rules… You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can’t do is ignore them because they change things… they push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do.
  • “Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”
  • “Do you want to spend the rest of your life selling sugared water or do you want a chance to change the world?”
  •  “Quality is more important than quantity. One home run is much better than two doubles.”
  • “Sometimes when you innovate, you make mistakes. It is best to admit them quickly, and get on with improving your other innovations.”
  • “Being the richest man in the cemetery doesn’t matter to me … Going to bed at night saying we’ve done something wonderful… that’s what matters to me.”
  • “The only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it.”
  • “I don’t care what you think of me. You care what I think of you.”
  • “If you live each day as if it was your last someday you’ll most certainly be right.”

He was a great visionary, when he left us, he left legacy which will never die, we have to learn a lot from his life. He started working for Apple at the age of 21 and left us at 56. 35 years of a man has brought tremendous change to the world of technology and the way people live. RIP Steve jobs, you’ll never die from our hearts.

“… You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something – your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.” – Stanford University commencement address , June 2005.
