Steve Jobs: His Own Words and Wisdom
Remarkable Quotations by Steve Jobs
Founder and CEO of Apple
Selected by the Editors of the Cupertino Silicon Valley Press
"Here's to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes… the ones who see things differently — they're not fond of rules… You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can't do is ignore them because they change things… they push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do."
"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. ... Stay hungry. Stay foolish."
A remarkable collection of quotations by one of the most influential visionaries of our time. Given up for adoption by his biological parents, and never having graduated from university, Steve Jobs subsequently became the most admired businessperson of his generation. A man who invented or revolutionized five major global industries (personal computer, music, film, mobile phone, and tablet computers), Steve Jobs was a brilliant, enigmatic, and flawed individual, whose personal contradictions were often overshadowed by his public persona.
For the first time, his own words have been collected and edited by the Cupertino Silicon Valley Press in a special exclusive Kindle Edition.
