Other Steve Jobs quotes Virgin America could have used on its planes

Airline pays tribute to late Apple co-founder with quote on plane; why not more?

Having exhausted all forms of tribute to Steve Jobs on land, the ongoing celebration of the late Apple co-founder has now taken to the air.

The airline Virgin America has stamped one of its Airbus A320 passenger jets with a quote attributed to Jobs: "Stay hungry, stay foolish."

(Note: That quote actually isn't a Jobs original. He read it on the back cover of The Whole Earth Catalog in the 1970s, as he explained during his well-known 2005 commencement address at Stanford University. But it's now associated with him.)

A Virgin America spokesperson told MacRumors that the phrase was submitted by an employee last fall as part of an internal plane-naming competition.

Having died in early October following a long struggle with cancer, Jobs clearly was on the minds of employees at Virgin America, the only airline based in Silicon Valley. ITworld has obtained several other Jobs-related quotes submitted by workers of the airline as a tribute to the tech legend's passion and perpetual drive for excellence. Here are some of them:

"You guys don't know what you're doing!"

"Everything you've ever done in your life is sh*t."

"How many times have you taken LSD?"

"By the way, what have you done that’s so great?"

"F*ck Michael Dell."

"You should hate each other for having let each other down."

"Gobble, gobble, gobble, gobble."

"Beware the bozo explosion."

"Google you f***ing ripped off the iPhone, wholesale ripped us off."
