Remembering Steve Jobs

I gathered a few of my favourite quotes recognising the passing of Steve Jobs. I would like to share them with you.

From designers and writers

There are no words for a day like today. I left work to people silently placing flowers outside 1 Infinite Loop. I could only hear cameras.

Taylor Carrigan

Gutted. I’d so hoped that Steve had another comeback within him. His innovations have made my career possible, and I’m so grateful for that.

Meagan Fisher

Steve Jobs did what he wanted to do, and left the world a better place. I can’t think of a better eulogy than that.

Jonas Wisser

I am thankful for Steve’s life and what he accomplished. But I also remember that he was still just a man, like all of us. We continue by seeking to live with intention, by loving those around us, pursuing our dreams, trusting our gut, and remembering that life is fragile.

Shawn Blanc

[T]ruth be told, I never gave up hope that Steve would beat this again. What a life.

John Gruber

If you want to honor Steve, don’t mourn. Do your best work every day. Live your life to the fullest. Never settle. His spirit lives on.

From public figures

We met Steve Jobs while he was at NeXT. I was awed by hearing his COMPUTER play a terrifyingly lifelike guitar recording. Bye, great mind.


His death is our huge loss.


Thanks for the tools, the inspiration, the possibilities… Miss you already Steve.

Trent Reznor

Steve was among the greatest of American innovators – brave enough to think differently, bold enough to believe he could change the world, and talented enough to do it.

Barack Obama

The world rarely sees someone who has had the profound impact Steve has had, the effects of which will be felt for many generations to come.

Bill Gates
