在英國Channel 4播出的「Steve Jobs: iChange the World」紀錄片中,收錄了一段從未公開放送,在1994年時錄製的Steve Jobs訪談。在訪談中,Steve Jobs提到……

When you grow up, you tend to get told that the world is the way it is, and your life is just to live your life inside the world. Try not to bash into the walls too much. Try to have a nice family life. Have fun, save a little money. That’s a very limited life. Life can be much broader, once you discover one simple fact, and that is everything around that you call life was made up by people who were no smarter than you. And you can change it. You can influence it. You can build your own things that other people can use. Once you learn that, you’ll never be the same again.

當你長大了,其他人往往會對你說世界就是這麼一回事,你的人生就是在這個世界中生活。要試著別去撞到太多的牆壁、試著去擁有一個美好的家庭生活、要快樂、要存下一點錢。那是一個非常侷限的生活。

一旦你發現一個簡單的事實,生命就能變的更寬廣。這個事實就是──所有環繞在周圍,被你稱之為「生活」的東西,是被那些並不比你要聰明的人所建構出來的。

你可以改變它、你可以影響它、你可以打造屬於你自己的東西,並提供給其他人使用。

一旦你明白了這個事實,你就再也不會像從前一樣了。
