Steve Jobs: His Most Memorable Quotes


Steve Jobs didn't just leave us iPods, iPads,
iPhones and other technology that will
continue to change our lives.

Apple's co-founder, who died of pancreatic
cancer on Wednesday at the age of 56, also
shared his wisdom with the world through
his words.


Below are some of the late innovator's
most memorable quotes:


"Your time is limited, so don't waste it
living someone else's life... Don't let the
noise of others' 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." -Stanford
commencement speech, 2005

"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." -
Wall Street Journal, 1993

"Things don't have to change the world to
be important." -Wired Magazine, 1996
"It's more fun to be a pirate than to join the
navy." -Odyssey: Pepsi to Apple, 1987

"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." -
Stanford commencement speech, 2005

"Sometimes when you innovate, you make
mistakes. It is best to admit them quickly,
and get on with improving your other
innovations." -Steve Jobs: The Journey is
the Reward, 1988

"Your work is going to fill a large part of
your life, and the only way to be truly
satisfied is to do what you believe is great
work. And 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. And, like any great relationship, it
just gets better and better as the years roll
on. So keep looking until you find it. Don't
settle." - Stanford commencement speech,
2005
