Quotes by Steve Jobs :

A leader and a follower
Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower.
Steve Jobs | creativity

Being the richest man
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.
Steve Jobs | money

Changing the world
Things don't have to change the world to be important.
Steve Jobs | change

Don't lose it
Sometimes life hits you in the head with a brick. Don't lose faith.
Steve Jobs | life

Faith in technology
It's not a faith in technology. It's faith in people.
Steve Jobs | technology

It doesn't validate my intelligence
Bottom line is, I didn't return to Apple to make a fortune. I've been very lucky in my life and already have one. When I was 25, my net worth was $100 million or so. I decided then that I wasn't going to let it ruin my life. There's no way you could ever spend it all, and I don't view wealth as something that validates my intelligence.
Steve Jobs | money

It freed me
I didn't see it then, but it turned out that getting fired from Apple was the best thing that could have ever happened to me. The heaviness of being successful was replaced by the lightness of being a beginner again, less sure about everything. It freed me to enter one of the most creative periods of my life.
Steve Jobs | creativity

It is just connecting things
Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn't really do it, they just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while. That's because they were able to connect experiences they've had and synthesize new things.
Steve Jobs | creativity

It is Life's change agent
No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don't want to die to get there. And yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because Death is very likely the single best invention of Life. It is Life's change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new.
Steve Jobs | death

It is nothing
Technology is nothing. What's important is that you have a faith in people, that they're basically good and smart, and if you give them tools, they'll do wonderful things with them.
Steve Jobs | technology

It needs a lot of discipline
To turn really interesting ideas and fledgling technologies into a company that can continue to innovate for years, it requires a lot of discipline.
Steve Jobs | technology

The most important tool
Remembering that I'll be dead soon is the most important tool I've ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything - all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure - these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important.
Steve Jobs | death

The most precious resource
My favorite things in life don't cost any money. It's really clear that the most precious resource we all have is time.
Steve Jobs | time

Time is limited
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 others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.
Steve Jobs | time

You may make mistakes
Sometimes when you innovate, you make mistakes. It is best to admit them quickly, and get on with improving your other innovations.
Steve Jobs | creativity

Your work
Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And 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.
Steve Jobs | work
