Special Quotes from Steve Jobs-A Great Man
Steve Jobs, CEO and genius has passed away at the early age of 56.
His photo is haunting. Behind those eyes you wonder what he might have accomplished had he lived to a ripe old age.
He leaves a legacy, and no matter what a person thinks of Wall Street Greed at this point in time, his innovations have changed the world. It can be good or bad, depending on what we do with it.
Like guns, its the people behind those tools that make them evil or good. I'm thankful for the good citizens who own firearms to thwart criminals. Self defense if the god given right of every living thing.
Below are some profound statements I read last night, and wanted to share with you.
"Remembering that I'll be dead soon is the most important tool I've ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life," Jobs said during a Stanford commencement ceremony in 2005.
"Because almost everything -- all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure -- these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important."
"Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart." (Reporting by Edwin Chan; Editing by Gary Hill
