Bestest Steve Jobs Quotes

On PC’s :

Playboy: Are you saying that the people who made PC don’t have that kind of pride in the product?

On Life:

“My sex life is pretty good these days, Walt. How’s yours?” – 2010

On Design:

“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.” – 1996

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.” – 1987 

Advices 

“You make some of the best products in the world — but you also make a lot of crap. Get rid of the crappy stuff.” to Nike

“Do you want to spend the rest of your life selling sugared water or do you want a chance to change the world?” – to Pepsi

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.

“I want to put a ding in the universe.”
