Steve Jobs evokes different reactions and emotions from people. On one end of the spectrum, we have people who worship the man and his work. For them, the guy who brought Apple to unimaginable heights could do no wrong. They may even seek to emulate his life.

On the other end of the spectrum, there are those people who cannot stand the mere thought of Steve Jobs. They think that for all his success, he was just a rotten person who always got his way.

Of course, perspectives will always differ, and those camps will always have their own points of view. Personally, I prefer to see Steve Jobs in a more objective light. I think he is a genius in his own right, but I will not elevate him to god status as well.

That being said, I have been looking at some of the best Steve-isms to be found online. Yes, there is a lot that can be learned from this man.

Below is a handy infographic summarizing some of the most salient points that we can pick up from his life. From his student years to his life as one of the most successful people in the world - the graphic takes you on an interesting roller coaster ride.

My Favorite Quotes From Steve Jobs

Whether you admire the man, or you want to put a baseball bat to his face at times, you can't really deny that he has said some brilliant things. More than brilliant, many of the things he has said have served to inspire people all over the world. This hub will not be enough to contain everything Steve Jobs has said, but let me share some of my favorite quotes from him.

  • It’s only by saying no that you can concentrate on the things that are really important.
  • Stay hungry, stay foolish.
  • Sometimes when you innovate, you make mistakes. It is best to admit them quickly, and get on with improving your other innovations.
  • Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works.
  • It’s really hard to design products by focus groups. A lot of times, people don’t know what they want until you show it to them.
  • 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.
  • I don’t view wealth as something that validates my intelligence.
  • I believe life is an intelligent thing — that things aren’t random.
