Most Inspiring Steve Jobs Quotes

Steve Jobs is not only one of the fathers of the personal computing era but also heralded as one of the best businessmen and creative minds of the past century. The late Apple co-founder, who was the 110th richest person in the world with an estimated net worth of $ 8.3 billion in 2011, revolutionized an industry and created technology others only dreamed of.

Following are 15 best Steve Jobs quotes that can inspire you.

“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.”

“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.”

“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.”

“You have to trust in something — your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down.”  

“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.”

“I think death is the most wonderful invention of life. It purges the system of these old models that are obsolete.”

“Sometimes life hits you in the head with a brick. Don’t lose faith.”

“Quality is more important than quantity. One home run is much better than two doubles.”

“My model for business is the Beatles. They were four guys who kept each other’s kind of negative tendencies in check. They balanced each other, and the total was greater than the sum of the parts. That’s how I see business: Great things in business are never done by one person. They’re done by a team of people.”

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

“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.”

“Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your owner inner voice.

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

“That’s been one of my mantras – focus and simplicity. Simple can be harder than complex: You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple. But it’s worth it in the end because once you get there, you can move mountains.”

“I think we’re having fun. I think our customers really like our products. And we’re always trying to do better.”
