A few great Steve Jobs Quotes!

“Simple can be harder than complex. You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple . But it is worth it in the end because once you get there you can move mountains’

‘ it is more fun to be a pirate than to join the navy’

“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 us great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do’

” The ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do”
