Below are some of the late innovator's most memorable quotes:

"Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life... Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary." -Stanford commencement speech, 2005

"Being the richest man in the cemetery doesn’t matter to me... Going to bed at night saying we’ve done something wonderful... that’s what matters to me." -Wall Street Journal, 1993

"Things don't have to change the world to be important." -Wired Magazine, 1996

"It's more fun to be a pirate than to join the navy." -Odyssey: Pepsi to Apple, 1987

"You can't connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something -- your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life." - Stanford commencement speech, 2005

"Sometimes when you innovate, you make mistakes. It is best to admit them quickly, and get on with improving your other innovations." -Steve Jobs: The Journey is the Reward, 1988

"Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking until you find it. Don't settle." - Stanford commencement speech, 2005
