Zitate: Die Welt trauert um Steve Jobs

Steve Jobs ist heute Nacht im Alter von nur 56 Jahren gestorben. Vor sechs Jahren hielt der Apple- und Pixar-Gründer an der Standford-Universität eine hochbeachtete Rede an die Universitätsabsolventen. In dieser Rede ging Steve Jobs auch auf das Thema Sterben ein: «Niemand will sterben. Nicht mal Menschen, die in den Himmel kommen wollen sterben, um dorthin zu gelangen. Und dennoch ist der Tod das Schicksal, das wir alle teilen. Niemand ist dem jemals entkommen. Und das ist so, wie es sein sollte, denn der Tod ist möglicherweise die beste Erfindung des Lebens. Er ist der Vertreter des Lebens für die Veränderung. Er räumt das Alte weg, um Platz zu machen für das Neue. Aktuell seid das Neue ihr, aber eines Tages, nicht all zu weit weg von jetzt, werdet ihr langsam zum Alten gehören und weggeräumt werden. Tut mir Leid, dass ich so dramatisch bin. Aber es ist die Wahrheit. Deine Zeit ist begrenzt, also verbrauche Sie nicht, um das Leben anderer zu leben. Sei nicht gefangen durch Dogmas — das ist Leben nach Vorstellungen von anderen Leuten. Lass den Lärm anderer Meinungen nicht die eigene innere Stimme verstummen. Und das aller Wichtigste: Habe den Mut dem eigenen Herzen und deiner Intuition zu folgen. Denn diese beiden wissen irgendwie schon genau, was du wirklich sein willst. Alles andere ist zweitrangig.»

Viele grosse Persönlichkeiten haben sich heute zum Tod von Steve Jobs geäussert. Wir haben in diesem Artikel einige Zitate zum Ableben des Apple-Gründers gesammelt.

Steve’s brilliance, passion and energy were the source of countless innovations that enrich and improve all of our lives. The world is immeasurably better because of Steve.

Steve Jobs was a great friend as well as a trusted advisor. His legacy will extend far beyond the products he created or the businesses he built. It will be the millions of people he inspired, the lives he changed, and the culture he defined. Steve was such an ‘original,’ with a thoroughly creative, imaginative mind that defined an era. Despite all he accomplished, it feels like he was just getting started. With his passing the world has lost a rare original.

Robert Iger, CEO und Präsident von Disney

Steve Jobs was an extraordinary visionary, our very dear friend and the guiding light of the Pixar family. He saw the potential of what Pixar could be before the rest of us, and beyond what anyone ever imagined. Steve took a chance on us and believed in our crazy dream of making computer animated films; the one thing he always said was to simply ‘make it great.’  He is why Pixar turned out the way we did and his strength, integrity and love of life has made us all better people. He will forever be a part of Pixar’s DNA. Our hearts go out to his wife Laurene and their children during this incredibly difficult time.

John Lasseter und Ed Catmull (Pixar)

The world rarely sees someone who has had the profound impact Steve has had, the effects of which will be felt for many generations to come. For those of us lucky enough to get to work with him, it’s been an insanely great honor. I will miss Steve immensely.

Bill Gates, Microsoft Gründer

The world has lost a visionary. And there may be no greater tribute to Steve’s success than the fact that much of the world learned of his passing on a device he invented. Michelle and I send our thoughts and prayers to Steve’s wife Laurene, his family, and all those who loved him.

US-Präsident Barack Obama

Steve, thank you for being a mentor and a friend. Thanks for showing that what you build can change the world. I will miss you.

Mark Zuckerberg, Chef und Erfinder von Facebook

I want to express my deepest condolences at the passing of Steve Jobs, one of the founders of our industry and a true visionary. My heart goes out to his family, everyone at Apple and everyone who has been touched by his work.

Steve Balmer, CEO von Microsoft

The digital age has lost its leading light, but Steve’s innovation and creativity will inspire dreamers and thinkers for generations.

Howard Stringer, CEO und Präsident von SONY

From the earliest days of Google, whenever Larry and I sought inspiration for vision and leadership, we needed to look no farther than Cupertino. Steve, your passion for excellence is felt by anyone who has ever touched an Apple product (including the macbook I am writing this on right now). And I have witnessed it in person the few times we have met. On behalf of all of us at Google and more broadly in technology, you will be missed very much. My condolences to family, friends, and colleagues at Apple.

Sergey Brin, Google-Mitbegründer

I am very, very sad to hear the news about Steve. He was a great man with incredible achievements and amazing brilliance. He always seemed to be able to say in very few words what you actually should have been thinking before you thought it. His focus on the user experience above all else has always been an inspiration to me. He was very kind to reach out to me as I became CEO of Google and spend time offering his advice and knowledge even though he was not at all well. My thoughts are with his family and the whole Apple family.

Larry Page, Google-Mitbegründert

Steve Jobs was an iconic entrepreneur and businessman whose impact on technology was felt beyond Silicon Valley. He will be remembered for the innovation he brought to market and the inspiration he brought to the world.

Meg Whitman, CEO und Präsident von HP

Steve was my hero growing up. He not only gave me a lot of personal advice and encouragement, he showed all of us how innovation can change lives.I will miss him dearly, as will the world.

Jerry Yang, Gründer und ehemaliger CEO von Yahoo!

He was dubbed a megalomaniac, but Steve Jobs often gambled on young, largely inexperienced talent to take Apple forward; Jony Ive and his team prove that such faith was spot on.

James Dyson, Gründer DYSON

Chairman Steve Jobs introduced numerous revolutionary changes to the information technology industry and was a great entrepreneur. His innovative spirit and remarkable accomplishments will forever be remembered by people around the world.

G.S. Choi, CEO von Samsung

Today, we lost one of the most influential thinkers, creators and entrepreneurs of all time. Steve Jobs was simply the greatest CEO of his generation. While I am deeply saddened by his passing, I’m reminded of the stunning impact he had in revolutionising the way people consume media and entertainment.

Rupert Murdoch, News Corp.

Today the world lost a visionary leader, the technology industry lost an iconic legend and I lost a friend and fellow founder. The legacy of Steve Jobs will be remembered for generations to come.

Michael Dell, Gründer und CEO von DELL

Mit Steve Jobs verliert die Welt einen einzigartigen Visionär. Er hat nicht nur die Innovationskraft von Apple geprägt, sondern der gesamten ICT-Branche immer wieder wichtige Impulse gegeben. Bei Apple hat Steve Jobs revolutionäre Standards gesetzt, die die Kommunikation zwischen Mensch und Maschine vereinfachen. Dazu gehören Touchscreen, Apps und Spracherkennung. Es ist Steve Jobs zu verdanken, dass heute so viele Menschen auf einfachste Art und Weise Zugriff auf das Internet haben.

Carsten Schloter, Swisscom-Chef

Mit seinem Tod erwacht Steve zum ewigen Leben. Gedanken an sein Charisma, seine Persönlichkeit und seine Bescheidenheit wecken Wehmut in mir.

Simon Balz, macprime.ch

Die Welt hat ein wahrlich visionäres und kreatives Genie verloren — einer meiner persönlichen Helden und Idolen.

@minna: JedeR hat seine eigenen Vorstellungen, was nach dem Tod ist. Weshalb störst du dich daran? Glaubst du wirklich, dass Steve Jobs wegen Balz’s Aussage nicht in Frieden ruhen kann?
Du hast Recht, wenn du sagst, dass wir das “andere besser einem anderen überlassen”; da stimme ich dir vollkommen zu. Aber sind es denn nicht unsere Vorstellungen einer Weiterexistenz, die uns Hoffnung geben?
