Ultimate Collection of Top 20 Inspirational Steve Jobs Quotes

He was also the CEO of PIXAR studios, which delivered some cool movies like Toy Story, Wall-E and so on. His name fascinates a huge crowd and he has a huge group of fan following him. Some criticize him, some praise him. Ask me! I praise him. He has given so much to the world of technology that nobody could ever imagine. I have collected some awesome quotes said by the genius. Do share, if I have missed any:

1. We’re gambling on our vision, and we would rather do that than make “me too” products. Let some other companies do that. For us, it’s always the next dream. Interview about the release of the Macintosh (24 January 1984)

2. 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. On the success of Bill Gates and Microsoft, as quoted in The Wall Street Journal (Summer 1993)

3. 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.

4. Nobody has tried to swallow us since I’ve been here. I think they are afraid how we would taste.

5. It’s really hard to design products by focus groups. A lot of times, people don’t know what they want until you show it to them.

6. Pixar is the most technically advanced creative company; Apple is the most creatively advanced technical company. As quoted in Fortune

7. Click. Boom. Amazing! MacWorld “Intel Inside” keynote address (January 2006)

8. 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.

9. No one wants to die. Even people who wanna go to heaven don’t wanna die to get there.

10. Stay hungry. Stay foolish.

11. 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.

12. 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.

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

14. Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower.

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

16. Why join the navy if you can be a pirate?

17. 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.

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

19. The only problem with Microsoft is they just have no taste. They have absolutely no taste. And I don’t mean that in a small way, I mean that in a big way, in the sense that they don’t think of original ideas, and they don’t bring much culture into their products.

And the best of all…

20. When I was 17, I read a quote that went something like: “If you live each day as if it was your last, someday you’ll most certainly be right.” It made an impression on me, and since then, for the past 33 years, 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.
