Steve Jobs is not just a name, it is an inspiration, it is a success story, it is a school of thought! His journey has been talked about every other day by every other person, but we still can’t get enough of him. If you ponder on the everyday things that he said, there is a lot left to learn. Here are 10 quotes from Steve that will keep your motivation level high.

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

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

“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.”

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

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


“My favorite things in life don’t cost any money. It’s really clear that the most precious resource we all have is time.”

“Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn’t really do it, they just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while.”

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

“What a computer is to me is the most remarkable tool that we have ever come up with. It’s the equivalent of a bicycle for our minds.”

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

It was Steve Jobs sheer grit and determination that got things going for him and put Apple at the helm of the Tech world. He didn’t get it all at once, he failed more than once but bounced back, did not run out of faith, he brought about a revolution, became a gamechanger and made the world realise for one more time, that nothing is impossible. People may laugh at your perseverance to begin with, but remember, no matter what they say, one day it is going to pay. As a closing note, in Jobs own words-“Stay hungry. Stay foolish!”
