Copy
Design is a funny... Design is a funny word. Some people think design means how it looks. But of course, if you dig deeper, it's really how it works.
Copy
Don’t be trapped by... Don’t be trapped by dogma—which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. 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.
Copy
For the past 33... For the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: 'If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?' And whenever the answer has been 'No' for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.
Copy

Copy
I have a great... I have a great respect for incremental improvement, and I've done that sort of thing in my life, but I've always been attracted to the more revolutionary changes. I don't know why. Because they're harder. They're much more stressful emotionally. And you usually go through a period where everybody tells you that you've completely failed.
Copy
I think if you... I think if you do something and it turns out pretty good, then you should go do something else wonderful, not dwell on it for too long. Just figure out what’s next.
Copy
I'm sorry, it's true.... I'm sorry, it's true. Having children really changes your view on these things. We're born, we live for a brief instant, and we die. It's been happening for a long time. Technology is not changing it much - if at all.
Copy
Innovation distinguishes between a... Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower. 
Copy
Innovation is the ability... Innovation is the ability to see change as an opportunity – not a threat.
Copy
Microsoft has had two... Microsoft has had two goals in the last 10 years. One was to copy the Mac, and the other was to copy Lotus' success in the spreadsheet - basically, the applications business. And over the course of the last 10 years, Microsoft accomplished both of those goals. And now they are completely lost.
Copy
My job is not... My job is not to be easy on people. My job is to make them better.
Copy
Remembering that I'll be... 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.
Copy
Sometimes life hits you... Sometimes life hits you in the head with a brick. Don't lose faith.
Copy
The minute that you... The minute that you understand that you can poke life and actually something will, you know if you push in, something will pop out the other side, that you can change it, you can mold it. That’s maybe the most important thing. It’s to shake off this erroneous notion that life is there and you’re just gonna live in it, versus embrace it, change it, improve it, make your mark upon it.
Copy
The ones who are... The ones who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones that do.
Copy
The only way to... The only way to do great work is to love what you do.
Copy
There’s an old Wayne... There’s an old Wayne Gretzky quote that I love. I skate to where the puck is going to be, not where it has been. And we’ve always tried to do that at Apple. Since the very, very beginning.
Copy
You can't connect the... 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.
Copy
You have to be... You have to be burning with an idea, or a problem, or a wrong that you want to right. If you’re not passionate enough from the start, you’ll never stick it out.
Copy
You have to believe... You have to believe that the dots will somehow connect in your future.
Copy
Your time is limited,... Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life.
Copy
Your time is limited,... 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 others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.
Copy
Your work is going... 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.
