Steve Jobs 1955-2011. RIP. Will always remember him, his work & his words..

“I want to put a ding in the universe.”

“Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower.”

“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.”

“I think if you do something and it turns out pretty good, then you should go do something else wonderful, not dwell on it for too long. Just figure out what’s next.”

“Stay hungry, stay foolish.”

“It’s more fun to be a pirate than to join the navy.”

“I would trade all of my technology for an afternoon with Socrates.”

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

“I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: “If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?” And whenever the answer has been “No” for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.”

“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 products suck! There’s no sex in them anymore!”

“Do you want to spend the rest of your life selling sugared water or do you want a chance to change the world?”

“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.”

“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. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”
