Steve Jobs Quotes: How He Saw Himself

I don’t have any skeletons in my closet that can’t be allowed out.

I’m just a guy who probably should have been a semi-talented poet on the Left Bank. I sort of got sidetracked here.

If I look at myself and ask, ‘What am I best at and what do I enjoy most doing?’ I think what I’m best at is creating sort of new innovative products.

I want to put a ding in the universe.

I can be very intense in my convictions. And I don’t know; all in all, I kind of like myself and I’m not that anxious to change.

There’s different things in life you can do. You can become a painter, you can become a sculptor. You can make something by yourself. But that’s not what I do. I do the other thing, which is, you work at things that one person can’t do, and that you need large numbers of people to do. I know people like symbols, but it’s always unsettling when people write stories about me, because they tend to overlook a lot of other people.
