Jobs speaking of Bill Gates:
"He'd be a broader guy if had dropped acid once or gone off to an ashram when he was younger."
Jobs responding to questions about market research:
"Did Alexander Graham Bell do any market research before he invented the telephone."
"No," he replied, "because customers don't know what they want until we've shown them."
Jobs on why craftsmanship and beauty matter:
"When you're a carpenter making a beautiful chest of drawers, you're not going to use a piece of plywood on the back, even though it faces the wall and nobody will ever see it. You'll know it's there, so you're going to use a beautiful piece of wood on the back. For you to sleep well at night, the aesthetic, the quality, has to be carried all the way through."
"Great art stretches the taste, it doesn't follow tastes."
