Steve Jobs famous quotes collection

I've always wanted to own and control the primary technology in everything we do.

Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works.

I think we're having fun. I think our customers really like our products. And we're always trying to do better.

A lot of companies have chosen to downsize, and maybe that was the right thing for them. We chose a different path. Our belief was that if we kept putting great products in front of customers, they would continue to open their wallets.

Sometimes when you innovate, you make mistakes. It is best to admit them quickly, and get on with improving your other innovations.

Pretty much, Apple and Dell are the only ones in this industry making money. They make it by being Wal-Mart. We make it by innovation.

It took us three years to build the NeXT computer. If we'd given customers what they said they wanted, we'd have built a computer they'd have been happy with a year after we spoke to them - not something they'd want now.

The people who are doing the work are the moving force behind the Macintosh. My job is to create a space for them, to clear out the rest of the organization and keep it at bay.

It's rare that you see an artist in his 30s or 40s able to really contribute something amazing.

Loves you for exactly what you are - love quote

I just loved the conversation between Juno MacGuff (Ellen Page) and Mac MacGuff(J.K. Simmons) in one scene in the famous movie Juno

Juno : I just... I need to know that it's possible that two people can stay happy together forever.

Mac MacGuff: Well, it's not easy,that's for sure. And, uh, I don't have the best track record in the world,

Juno : I know, but...

Mac MacGuff: I've been with your stepmother for ten years now,and, um, I'm proud to say, we're very happy.
Look .... In my opinion, the best thing you can do is find a person who loves you for exactly what you are. Good mood, bad mood, ugly, pretty, handsome, what have you, the right person will still think the sun shines out your ass. That's the kind of person that's worth sticking with.

Juno : Yeah. and I think I've found that person.

The Square Root of 3 - Kumar Patel recitation

Kumar Patel: [reciting the poem 'The Square Root of 3'] in Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay

The youtube clip can be found here

The poem:
I fear that I will always be
A lonely number like root three
A three is all that's good and right,
Why must my three keep out of sight
Beneath a vicious square root sign,
I wish instead I were a nine
For nine could thwart this evil trick,
with just some quick arithmetic
I know I'll never see the sun, as 1.7321
Such is my reality, a sad irrationality
When hark! What is this I see,
Another square root of a three
Has quietly come waltzing by,
Together now we multiply
To form a number we prefer,
Rejoicing as an integer
We break free from our mortal bonds
And with a wave of magic wands
Our square root signs become unglued
And love for me has been renewed.

Peace quotes from Mother Teresa

Wiki page onMother Teresa

Some of her famous peace quotes:

If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other.

Peace begins with a smile.

Let us more and more insist on raising funds of love, of kindness, of understanding, of peace. Money will come if we seek first the Kingdom of God - the rest will be given.

I was once asked why I don't participate in anti-war demonstrations. I said that I will never do that, but as soon as you have a pro-peace rally, I'll be there.

All works of love are works of peace.

Everybody today seems to be in such a terrible rush, anxious for greater developments and greater riches and so on, so that children have very little time for their parents. Parents have very little time for each other, and in the home begins the disruption of peace of the world.

Please choose the way of peace.. In the short term there may be winners and losers in this war that we all dread. But that never can, nor never will justify the suffering, pain and loss of life your weapons will cause.

A sacrifice to be real must cost, must hurt, must empty ourselves. The fruit of silence is prayer, the fruit of prayer is faith, the fruit of faith is love, the fruit of love is service, the fruit of service is peace.

Make us worthy, Lord, to serve those people throughout the world who live and die in poverty and hunger. Give them through our hands, this day, their daily bread, and by our understanding love, give them peace and joy.

If you want to make peace, you don't talk to your friends, you talk to your enemies

What can you do to promote world peace? Go home and love your family.
