"I never see a frame of anything I’ve done after I’ve done it. I don’t even remember what’s in the films. And if I’m on the treadmill and I’m surfing the channels and suddenly Manhattan or some other picture comes on, I go right past it. If I saw Manhattan again, I would only see the worst. I would say: “Oh, God, this is so embarrassing. I could have done this. I should have done that.” So I spare myself."
"“Be right all the time” is a worthy goal but impossible; “Try to be right all the time, but when wrong, get right as soon as you can” is the correct mindset."
"Facebook is godsent for people who love to talk, but have nothing to say"
"Get rid of all your best weapons, and then you have to get good."
"Never let the blood show"
"Give a crap. Don’t give a fuck."
"Good design is finding a solution to a problem. Great design is finding the simplest solution to the same problem."
"Design has to work, art does not."
You know, one of the things that really hurt Apple was after I left John Sculley got a very serious disease. It’s the disease of thinking that a really great idea is 90% of the work. And if you just tell all these other people “here’s this great idea,” then of course they can go off and make it happen.
And the problem with that is that there’s just a tremendous amount of craftsmanship in between a great idea and a great product. And as you evolve that great idea, it changes and grows. It never comes out like it starts because you learn a lot more as you get into the subtleties of it. And you also find there are tremendous tradeoffs that you have to make. There are just certain things you can’t make electrons do. There are certain things you can’t make plastic do. Or glass do. Or factories do. Or robots do.
Designing a product is keeping five thousand things in your brain and fitting them all together in new and different ways to get what you want. And every day you discover something new that is a new problem or a new opportunity to fit these things together a little differently.
And it’s that process that is the magic."

"I always thought that inspiration is for amateurs. The rest of us just show up and get to work."
