SOME THOUGHTS FROM STEVE JOBS

Some very inspiring and ageless words from Steve Jobs that reflect a brilliant mind caught in a very human body.

 

“At this moment, lying on the bed, sick and remembering all my life, I realize that all my recognition and wealth that I have is meaningless in the face of imminent death. You can hire someone to drive a car for you, make money for you – but you can not rent someone to carry the disease for you.

As we get older we are smarter, and we slowly realize that the watch is worth $30 or $300 – both of which show the same time. Whether we drive a car worth $150,000, or a car worth $2000 – the road and distance are the same, we reach the same destination. If we drink a bottle worth $300 or wine worth $10 we’re drunk”

  • -Do not educate your children to be rich. Educate them to be happy. – So when they grow up they will know the value of things, not the price.
  • -Eat your food as medicine, otherwise you will need to eat your medicine as food.
  • -Whoever loves you will never leave you, even if he or she has 100 reasons to give up. They will always find one reason to hold on.
  • -There is a big difference between being human and human being.
  • -If you want to go fast – go alone! But if you want to go far – go.

He is one of our hero’s, a man who was willing to risk it all for a dream that ventured into new territory.  That made him a visionary, because he saw something that didn’t exist until he was willing to follow an idea and make it a reality.

 

Steve, I am sure that from wherever you are now, even you are probably amazed at where your idea has gone.  From all of us, thank you Steve for following your vision and making it a reality.
