10 Best Quotes of Steve Jobs

This definitely marks one of the saddest days of my life. A mentor and a great visionary has left us. He has inspired the world through his dedication for innovation. He is considered to be the Thomas Edison of our times. With his death, an era ends. Compiled below is a list of some of  the famous and best quotes from Steve Job that speaks of his experiences.


He Wasn’t Proud


“Being the richest man in the cemetery doesn’t matter to me. Going to bed at night saying we have done something wonderful, that’s what matters to me”.

He Was Intelligent


“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”.

He Was Smart


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

He Wasn’t Greedy


“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 money”.

He Had Class


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

He Was Obsessed With Quality Work


“When you’re a carpenter making a beautiful chest of drawers, you’re not going to use a piece of plywood on the back, even though it faces the wall and nobody will ever see it. You’ll know it’s there, so you’re going to use a beautiful piece of wood on the back. For you to sleep well at night, the aesthetic, the quality, has to be carried all the way through”.

He Was Experienced


“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. And the reason they were able to do that was that they’ve had more experiences or they have thought more about their experiences than other people”.

He Had the Answers


“When you’re young, you look at television and think, there’s a conspiracy. The networks have conspired to dumb us down. But when you get a little older, you realize that’s not true. The networks are in business to give people exactly what they want. That’s a far more depressing thought. Conspiracy is optimistic! You can shoot the bastards! We can have a revolution! But the networks are really in business to give people what they want. It’s the truth”.

He believed in life


“No one wants to die. Even the people who want to go to heaven don’t want to die and get there. And yet, death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it, and that is how it should be, because death is very likely the single best invention of life. It’s life’s change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new”.

He was the best


“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”.
