Only when you get there, you realize that I got there first. I got the loot, Steve! And you're yellin'? "That's not fair. I wanted to try to steal it first." You're too late.

Steve Jobs: I am employee number one.
Investor: Okay...
Steve Jobs: Tell you what, I'll be employee number zero. Woz, you can be number one, and I'll be employee number zero.
Steve Jobs: Good artists copy, great artists steal.
Steve Jobs: A kid can have enough problems in this world. Not knowing where it belongs. A name--a name can label a kid. Make it um--an outsider.
