“Keep it simple.”

For us, Steve Jobs is synonymous with inspiration.

Throughout the years, he’s not only changed our lives with innovative products, but also with memorable words. Among the ways people are commemorating Jobs’ passing is posting their favorite Jobs-isms. Mashable took Tumblr to track down what Jobs quotes have resonated most with the tech world. Here’s some examples:

missambear: “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.”

theaccidentalexecutive: “I’m convinced that about half of what seperates the successful entrepreneurs from the non-successful ones is pure perseverance.”

b-duarte: “That’s been one of my mantras – focus and simplicity. Simple can be harder than complex: You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple. But it’s worth it in the end because once you get there, you can move mountains.”

mrboirsduck: “You can’t just ask customers what they want and then try to give that to them. By the time you get it built, they’ll want something new.”

snapshotdiaries: “We don’t get a chance to do that many things, and every one should be really excellent. Because this is our life.”
