The 100 Greatest Steve Jobs Quotes

28. "Technology is nothing. What's important is that you have a faith in people, that they're basically good and smart, and if you give them tools, they'll do wonderful things with them. It's not the tools that you have faith in - tools are just tools. They work, or they don't work. It's people you have faith in or not."

Where: Rolling Stone, June 16, 1994.

Referring to previous remarks on how technology can empower people, Job's kept his faith in how people would use the technology as a tool. His faith did not lie with humans becoming dependent on technology as it was presented to them, but with humans employing the basic tools technology offered to make drastic changes in the world.
