Steve Jobs, one of the most brilliant man that ever stepped foot on this planet already passed away after a tight struggle with cancer. Jobs was one of my inspiration and will always be my inspiration. Here are some of Steve's words that have moved and inspired countless individuals.

"A lot of companies have chosen to downsize, and maybe that was the right thing for them. We chose a different path. Our belief was that if we kept putting great products in front of customers, they would continue to open their wallets."


"Apple's market share is bigger than BMW's or Mercedes's or Porsche's in the automotive market. What's wrong with being BMW or Mercedes?"

"Be a yardstick of quality. Some people aren't used to an environment where excellence is expected."

"Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works."

"I think we're having fun. I think our customers really like our products. And we're always trying to do better."

"I want to put a ding in the universe."

"Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower."

"It is piracy, not overt online music stores, which is our main competitor."

"It took us three years to build the NeXT computer. If we'd given customers what they said they wanted, we'd have built a computer they'd have been happy with a year after we spoke to them - not something they'd want now."

"Pretty much, Apple and Dell are the only ones in this industry making money. They make it by being Wal-Mart. We make it by innovation."

"Sometimes when you innovate, you make mistakes. It is best to admit them quickly, and get on with improving your other innovations."

"The people who are doing the work are the moving force behind the Macintosh. My job is to create a space for them, to clear out the rest of the organization and keep it at bay."

"To turn really interesting ideas and fledgling technologies into a company that can continue to innovate for years, it requires a lot of disciplines."

"You can't just ask customers what they want and then try to give that to them. By the time you get it built, they'll want something new."

    “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.”

    “We made the buttons on the screen look so good you’ll want to lick them.”

    “Why join the navy if you can be a pirate?”

    RIP Steve Jobs

      I love that quote. Here's the full one:

      "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."

    Like Steve Jobs, why wont we thing in our life and why can go in our own way to give new ideas and products to this technology or in other field.

    Every thing is our mind to go strong and depth in one. Just do one as a trial with more confident along with more care.

    Nice reading...
    I liked the one where he speaks about walking around the Uni he dropped out of and noticed all the posters around the place and how beautifully set out they were.

    He said there was something about the wording that was so artistically arranged in a way that science could not describe. (or words to that effect)

    There-in was the creating of the inexplicable love that Apple fans have for the "feel" of his products.

    Bless his soul...

    Great quotes.

    I liked the most two of them.

    "It took us three years to build the NeXT computer. If we'd given customers what they said they wanted, we'd have built a computer they'd have been happy with a year after we spoke to them - not something they'd want now."

    This one talks about that we must fulfill our clients the way that they say a year by now that they are satisfied, we must be ahead of time. Just brilliant!!

    "Sometimes when you innovate, you make mistakes. It is best to admit them quickly, and get on with improving your other innovations."


    Imagine Apple admitting that they are wrong and correcting their errors as fast as possible.

    Steve Jobs it's really a visionary of our times!!

    Thanks for sharing.
