Steven Paul Jobs was an American businessman, best known as the co-founder, chairman, and chief executive officer of Apple Inc.; CEO and largest shareholder of Pixar Animation Studios. Yet what many people may not know is that in 2005 at a commencement speech at Stanford, he gave one of the most inspiring speeches ever. This is where most of Steve’s quotes originate from, and if it wasn’t for that day, we wouldn’t know the depth of this wonderful man.


1. Never Settle in Life

“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.”

2. Do What You Love

“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”

3. It’s Not About Money

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

4. Don’t Waste Your Time

“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”

5. Your Thoughts Create Your Reality


“Everyone here has the sense that right now is one of those moments when we are influencing the future.”

6. All Death is Birth to New Life

“No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don’t want to die to get there. And yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because Death is very likely the single best invention of Life. It is Life’s change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new.”

7. Keep Your Faith in Others

“Technology is nothing. What’s important is that you have a faith in people, that they’re basically good and smart, and if you give them tools, they’ll do wonderful things with them.”

8. Trust Your Gut and Follow Your Intuition

“Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice.”

9. Trust the Journey

“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”


10. Always Follow Your Heart

“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.”
