From the 80’s, Page 2

I’m not a 62-year-old statesman that’s traveled around the world all his life. So I’m sure that there was a situation when I was 25 that if I could go back, knowing what I know now, I could have handled much better. And I’m sure I’ll be able to say the same thing when I’m 35 about the situation in 1985. I can be very intense in my convictions. And I don’t know; all in all, I kind of like myself and I’m not that anxious to change.

Steve Jobs. 1985

(about the Macintosh) None of us wanted to release it at the end. It was as though we knew that once it was out of our hands, it wouldn’t be ours anymore. When we finally presented it at the shareholders’ meeting, everyone in the auditorium gave it a five-minute ovation. What was incredible to me was that I could see the Mac team in the first few rows. It was as though none of us could believe we’d actually finished it. Everyone started crying.
