“It’s through the team, through that group of incredibly talented people, bumping up against each other, having arguments, having fights sometimes, making some noise, and working together they polish each other and they polish the ideas and what comes out are these really beautiful stones. It’s hard to explain and it’s certainly not the result of one person.”

– Steve Jobs
