finding the breakingn ews on yahoo.com this morning about steve jobs' passing, i started checking out quotes from him, believing he must be a great man with a lot to say, being the founder of apple and a well-respected man. i guess i'm like everybody else who don't really care about famous people until something significant, like death, happened to them.
so here's what i found, and i thank steve jobs for inspiring me this early morning in an asian country faraway from where he probably lies in some exquisite coffin, peacefully, happily on his way to heaven.
“No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don’t want to die to get there. And yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because Death is very likely the single best invention of Life. It is Life’s change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new. Right now the new is you, but someday not too long from now, you will gradually become the old and be cleared away. Sorry to be so dramatic, but it is quite true.
“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” [Steve Jobs, Stanford commencement speech, June 2005]
Rest in peace, Sir.
I salute you, although, I'm an android user.
