Love him or hate him, there is no doubt that Apple and Pixar founder, Steve Jobs was a unique and influential human being.

Not only did he revolutionise personal computing but he also effectively created the mobile app industry as we know it.

I have no doubt that without Steve’s passion, innovation and foresight, mobile devices and the apps that run on them would not be the same today.

As a bit of fun and as a tribute to the late, great man, I’ve put together this list of my favourite Steve Jobs quotes. You’ll also find beautiful galleries of Steve Jobs quote images for use on your socials if you want to share his inspiring words.

In no particular order, here are some of the my favourite Steve Jobs quotes:


Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower.

I want to put a ding in the universe.

Sometimes life is going to hit you in the head with a brick. Don’t lose faith.

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

It’s more fun to be a pirate than to join the Navy.



Steve Jobs Quotes continued:

I’m as proud of what we don’t do as I am of what we do.

Things don’t have to change the world to be important.

Believing that the dots will connect down the road will give you the confidence to follow your heart

Details matter.

If you don’t love it, you’re going to fail.

Let’s go invent tomorrow rather than worrying about what happened yesterday.

everything around you that you call life, was made up by people that were no smarter than you.

Do something when you are young, when you have nothing to lose,

The most precious thing that we all have with us is time.

People who know what they’re talking about don’t need PowerPoint.

You have to trust in something, your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever.



Steve Jobs Quotes continued:

People judge you on your performance, so focus on the outcome.

Stay hungry, stay foolish.

Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life.

Follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.

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 other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice.



Steve Jobs Quotes continued:

If today were the last of your life, would you do what you were going to do today?

If you live each day as if it was your last, someday you’ll most certainly be right.

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

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.

I’m convinced that about half of what separates the successful entrepreneurs from the non-successful ones is pure perseverance.

Most people never ask. And that’s what separates sometimes the people that do things from the people that just dream about them.

If you are willing to work hard and ask lots of questions, you can learn business pretty fast.

The smallest company in the world can look as large as the largest company on the web.

If you are working on something exciting that you really care about, you don’t have to be pushed. The vision pulls you.


And finally, probably the most famous Steve Jobs quote of all time:

The people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.
