“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. There is no reason not to follow your heart. … Stay hungry. Stay foolish.”

“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.”

Business Week interview, May 1998

“Innovation comes from people meeting up in the hallways or calling each other at 10:30 at night with a new idea, or because they realized something that shoots holes in how we’ve been thinking about a problem.”

Fortune Magazine interview, 2000

“Design is the fundamental soul of a man-made creation that ends up expressing itself in successive outer layers of the product or service.”

Wall Street Journal interview, 1993

“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.”

‘Memory and Imagination’ documentary interview, 1990

“The computer is the most remarkable tool that we’ve ever come up with. It’s the equivalent of a bicycle for our minds.”

60 Minutes interview, 2003

“My model for business is The Beatles. They were four guys who kept each other’s kind of negative tendencies in check. They balanced each other and the total was greater than the sum of the parts. That’s how I see business: great things in business are never done by one person, they’re done by a team of people.”

WIRED interview, 1996

“These technologies can make life easier; can let us touch people we might not otherwise. You may have a child with a birth defect and be able to get in touch with other parents and support groups, get medical information, the latest experimental drugs.”

All Things Digital rare joint appearance with Bill Gates
