Цитаты Тим Кук
„Я твердо верю, что многие люди, радующиеся при покупке, из-за того, что они платят не высокую цену, разочаровываются, когда приносят домой этот планшет и начинают его использовать. Их запросы в полной мере не удовлетворяются и это первоначальное чувство выгодной покупки быстро проходит.“

„I don't think that you're born with gut [instinct], a gut matures and gets better and better over time, the struggle that most people have is learning to listen to it. Figuring out how to access it in some way. What I found is that even thought I'm an engineer and an analytical person at heart the most important decisions I've made had nothing to do with any of that. They were always based on intuition. The Apple one [choosing to leave Compaq to take the job at Apple in 1998] is a prime example of that. I remember forming my list of pluses and minuses and I could not get the chart to work out the way I wanted it to. Because I wanted something to say this says I should go to Apple. But it would not. Nothing financially would do that, I talked to people I trusted, that knew me, and they said: 'This is not what you should do'. It wasn't so easy. People said, you're just crazy, you're working for the top PC company in the world, how could you even think of doing it, you've lost your mind. And yet that voice said, 'Go West young man, Go West'. And some times you just have to go for it.“

„I don’t consider myself an activist, but I realize how much I’ve benefited from the sacrifice of others, … So if hearing that the CEO of Apple is gay can help someone struggling to come to terms with who he or she is, or bring comfort to anyone who feels alone, or inspire people to insist on their equality, then it’s worth the trade-off with my own privacy.“

„Our base philosophy is to never fear cannibalization. If we do, somebody else will just cannibalize it. We never fear it.“
