When they’ve never seen anything remotely like it.

Steve jobs inspirational quotes

Steve jobs famous quotes, Steve jobs quotes on innovation

 

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.
— Steve Jobs

 

Here’s to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers,
the round pegs in the square holes…
the ones who see things differently —
they’re not fond of rules…
You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them,
but the only thing you can’t do is ignore them because they change things…
they push the human race forward,
And while some may see them as the crazy ones,
We see genius, because the ones who are crazy enough
to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do.
— Steve Jobs

 

If you want to live your life in a creative way,

And whoever you were and throw them away.

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.
Because almost everything –
All external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure –
These things just fall away in the face of death,
Leaving only what is truly important.
Remembering that you are going to die is
The best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose.
You are already naked.
There is no reason not to follow your heart. …
Stay hungry. Stay foolish
— Steve Jobs

 

These technologies can make life easier, can let us touch people we might not otherwise. You may have a child with a birth defect and be able to get in touch with other parents and support groups, get medical information, the latest experimental drugs. These things can profoundly influence life. I’m not downplaying that. But it’s a disservice to constantly put things in this radical new light — that it’s going to change everything. Things don’t have to change the world to be important.
— Steve Jobs

 

Picasso had a saying: ‘Good artists copy, great artists steal.’
We have always been shameless about stealing great ideas…

Who also happened to be the best computer scientists in the world.
— Steve Jobs

 

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.
— Steve Jobs

 

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.
— Steve Jobs
