12 Steve Jobs’ Inspirational Quotes

Posted on 08 October 2011

As an Apple innovator, Steve Job changed the way people think different about technology. Even though he died on Oct 5, he left more memorable quotes to the world. The following is 12 famous Steve Jobs’ quotes from Buzzfeed:

I want to put a ding in the universe.

Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower.

We don’t get a chance to do that many things, and every one should be really excellent. Because this is our life. Life is brief, and then you die, you know? And we’ve all chosen to do this with our lives. So it better be damn good. It better be worth it.

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

I’m the only person I know that’s lost a quarter of a billion dollars in one year…. It’s very character building.

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.

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

So when a good idea comes, you know, part of my job is to move it around, just see what different people think, get people talking about it, argue with people about it, get ideas moving among that group of 100 people, get different people together to explore different aspects of it quietly, and, you know – just explore things.

People think focus means saying yes to the thing you’ve got to focus on. But that’s not what it means at all. It means saying no to the hundred other good ideas that there are. You have to pick carefully. I’m actually as proud of the things we haven’t done as the things I have done. Innovation is saying ‘no’ to 1,000 things.

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.
