I was lucky — I found what I loved to do early in life.

"I was lucky — I found what I loved to do early in life. Woz and I started Apple in my parents garage when I was 20. We worked hard, and in 10 years Apple had grown from just the two of us in a garage into a $2 billion company with over 4000 employees."

Ali, Pakistan

Dear Steve, it would be a honor and a great privilege to meet you some day. Perhaps on the occasion of a class visit to Silicon Valley and to attend classes at UCB. We are a group of students at IE Business School in Madrid! Ali, (Pakistan)

I love Apple. . .

I love Apple, but not the fruit.

...I don’t care about being different.

If we can be much better without being different, that would be fine with me. I want to be much better. I don’t care about being different.

I wish you the best. . .

The system ...

"The system is that there is no system. That doesn't mean we don't have process. Apple is a very disciplined company, and we have great processes. But that's not what it's about. Process makes you more efficient.

But 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. It's ad hoc meetings of six people called by someone who thinks he has figured out the coolest new thing ever and who wants to know what other people think of his idea.

And it comes from saying no to 1,000 things to make sure we don't get on the wrong track or try to do too much. We're always thinking about new markets we could enter, but it's only by saying no that you can concentrate on the things that are really important."

As quoted in "The Seed of Apple's Innovation"in Business Week (12 October 2004)

God bless you.

God bless you.

We want you back. We miss you ...

We want you back :'(, we miss you Steve Jobs. Get Well Soon!

Man I hope this b**** keeps moving forward.....we gotta keep Steve alive forever

You are a legend!

You are a legend!

Keith Larsen, Berlin, CT

Steve, you have inspired me to take risks in business and in life from the first time I saw you deliver an address. I've achieved more than I thought possible because you showed me that the status quo was intolerable and that it's ok to "think different". I felt as thoughIi could ditch my fears and insecurities and rally people to a cause. I've become a leader in my community and in my industry, shedding my boring 9-5 life in pursuit of dreams and innovation. It's all because of you. And now, it pains me to see someone who should be the leader of the free world in pain and not able to perform your magic at work. Your passion and devotion to Apple and life will remain my calling card for a push on a rough day. To my hero I can only say, keep fighting. There's only one Steve Jobs and the world will never be same without him. To a man I'll most likely never know: I love you for helping shape me into who I am. I hope I get to shake your hand one day. Sent from one of my great Steve-dreamed devices, and with platonic love and heartfelt thanks, Keith Larsen Berlin, CT

Apple is the best!

Apple is the best but my Mom says it's so expensive for us so now my dream is broken.

Respect Mr. Jobs!

Your journey is almost complete; your vision - so close to its reality. Steve Jobs will decide when that time comes. An immortal genius forever credited for the genesis of a new world. The idealism of the young can outlive the cynicism of those who do not think different(ly). Carry on, and peace be with you always! Brad Nease
