Remembering Steve Jobs the Legendary founder of Apple Computers on his Birthday. Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak, and Ronald Wayne started Apple on April 1, 1976, to develop and sell personal computers.
Steve literally had an opinion on everything, and his thoughts often echoed his insane commitment to quality at Apple computers, whether on his approach to mistakes. With a life nothing less of a movie script, it’s no wonder that Steve Jobs is remembered not only for running an immensely successful company but also for being way outspoken.
But he had plenty to say on deeper matters as well. Steve Jobs in his famous Stanford Commencement Speech told 3 stories of his life and his struggle from the time he was born. He became an insanely driven man who wanted to make a ding in the world.
One of the Most Impressive Steve Jobs Quotes I came across was this :
“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. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They invent, They imagine, They heal, They explore, They create, They inspire. They push the human race forward. Maybe they have to be crazy. How else can you stare at an empty canvas and see a work of art? Or sit in silence and hear a song that’s never been written? Or gaze at a red planet and see a laboratory on wheels? We make tools for these kinds of people. While some see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.” – Steve Jobs
Recently in an interview with Tim Cooks the current Apple CEO, he revealed that they have left Steve Jobs office as intact and it is not used by anyone after his death in the year 2011. His name is still on the door and is kept in this way as a tribute to him and the inspiration it still draws on Apple employees.
Cook says it’s important to the company to feel Jobs’ presence. Here are the 10 quotes that described the man.
