    My fav Steve Jobs quote, its simply moving and is my principle that I have followed and led me to where I am today.
    “Your time is limited; don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma, which is living the result of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinion drown 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.” – Steve Jobs

    My favorite quote from Mr Steve Jobs is
    “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.”
    What matters the most in life is to stay at the bottom even if you’re at the top. The quote just goes to show how rooted Mr Jobs was throughout his life. He was not only clairvoyant about technology, he also spoke clearly what he had on his mind. We rarely see such people anymore. RIP Mr Jobs.

    Well there are so many favourite Jobs quotes!
    One of course is “Stay hungry, stay foolish”. Another one is
    “Be a yardstick of quality. Some people aren’t used to an environment where excellence is expected.”

  • Vishal

    “I want to put a ding in the universe”

    This quote brings out his stern belief of making a mark in this universe through innovation which he successfully did.

    “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 other’s 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.”

    The words spoken at the Stanford Commencement Address. The best talk by Stever Jobs. He is truly “legendary” and this Quote speaks what I must follow especially now when my career life has begun.

  • Ajay Bharat

    It definitely has to be STAY HUNGRY , STAY FOOLISH , This has been the most profound statement ever made by any individual , STAY HUNGRY means always keep the hunger in you alive , never get satiated or you will stagnate , STAY FOOLISH because knowledge is a boundless ocean , the more u learn the more u realize that there is so much to learn . In life always try to go beyond the horizon & ultimately the SKY IS NOT THE LIMIT .

    “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 Address

    It’s so true for all of us. No matter how messed up things may seem when they’re happening, they always have a way of falling in place. And that’s perhaps because our heart took us to the right direction.. :)

  • titas kar

    the guy said “The products suck! There’s no sex in them anymore!” about APPLE products.
    unbelievable!!he seemed to know 10 years ago that college students like us would make the words “sex” and “suck” part of their daily lingo one day!!!
    this is definitely my most favourite Steve Jobs quote.

  • anita jain

    OMG! MissMalini, u have all the goergous arrangements in ur kitty, one awesome wedding u are gonna have. :) So do u get hold of such creative people and such cute stuff by the way? :)

    Here’s My Favorite One :

    “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.”

    He was Honest And Blunt .Which is the Most important Thing One should Learn From Him. He Did not Bothered about what will be the Consequences . He said what he actually Believe.

    And Also This : “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. 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. There is no reason not to follow your heart.”

    Trust me Or not This Quote Gives me Goosebumps Whenever i read it.Because It is actually so true that you can’t Deny it . And The last Line is simply SIMPLY Superb .Actually There is no reason not follow one’s Choice in the Life. ( The Line gave motivation for two Full Years.SERIOUSLY. and Now i’m finally Doing What i actually wanted to do with my life. :) )

    “Click. Boom. Amazing!” – Macworld keynote 2006

    I love this one because it relates to how steve jobs saw the world and how he wanted us to see it…. Everything should be simple and could and should be done like click boom amazing!

    See the world in a simple manner and everything will turn magical click boom amazing~

  • tanushree

    hey missmalini
    i have been a die hard steve job’s fan!
    i totally loved the way he spoke and have watched his commencement speech at the stanford university like a zillion times.its always on my phone.
    the best part is his theory about “the connecting dots”..this theory has always inspired me and whenevr i feel low and depressed ,i always see this video and that really keeps me going.according to him ” 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.”

    its like one of the most important theories that i follow and i alwys look upto him for any sort of inspiration.a true example of what all we can achieve even if we start from a scratch

    he truly is my hero :)

  • Sweta Saraf

    Here’s My Favorite One :

    “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.”

    Coz he was innovative,Factual n Very Very Practical…RESPECT !

  • Poonam Khinchi

    This one goes for my sista. She is one of the victim of Steve Jobs. She gave all her savings in buying only Apple products :)

    “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. There is no reason not to follow your heart” (This one is her fav lines from the Super Creator)

  • Parth Buch

    My favorite inspirational quote from Mr. Steve Jobs is “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.”.

    The reason why I liked this quote is as he has truly said there is nothing like a work if your not having any interest in doing that. It is the only thing which leads us to perform that task in a short span of time & that too with out any kind of boredom doing that!!!

  • Amit Bhambri

    Best one I like is ” Apple’s market share is bigger than BMW’s or Mercedes’s or Porsche’s in the automotive market. What’s wrong with being BMW or Mercedes?”

    Lolz.!!!

  • http://www.facebook.com/flukiestamar Amar Sharma

    My favorite steve jobs quote is

    ” A customer is a confused person and doesnt know what he wants until he has it ”

    Which basically means dont just build things which people like build something new and probably they’ll like what you’ve just made

    Cheers

    Steve Jobs had a great design aesthetic – and this he said about his philosophy towards design –
    “Simplicity is the ultimate Sophistication”

    And I live by this rule!

  • Monica Choudhury

    The most inspirational Steve Jobs quote for me is- ‘I think if you do something and it turns out pretty good,then you should go do something else wonderful,not dwell upon it for too long just figure out what’s next.’-
    (truly motivating not to sit still but move on)

  • Sukanya Banerjee

    “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” ….. time back i was all disheartened from the prospect of “heart” related matters but when you go through this quote ,its only motivation and inspiration that reflects out and feels as if someone is spreading wishful sparkles over your head and makes your every wish true right from your heart to reality :-)

    This one line that Mr.Jobs said has inspired me all my life..my mum said iit to me everyday when i was a kid, when she bought me my first IPOD it was engraved on it. I wont ever forget that line:

    “We don’t get a chance to do that many things, and every one should be really excellent. Because this is our life. Life is brief, and then you die, you know? So this is what we’ve chosen to do with our life. ”

    Just a few words change you, change your life..these are the ones that changed mine. :)
