What else is there to be said of the man who revolutionized personal computing? A remarkable man, a remarkable life.
Here are my favorite quotes from Steve Jobs:
“Being the richest man in the cemetery doesn’t matter to me … Going to bed at night saying we’ve done something wonderful… that’s what matters to me.”
“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 other’s 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.”
"We're here to put a dent on the universe. Otherwise why would we be here?"
A Zen Buddhist, Steve Jobs had a close relationship with a Japanese Zen Master, Kobun Chino Otogawa, who also presided over his wedding. Otogawa was also appointed as Apple's corporate spiritual adviser.
Steve Jobs' and Otogawa's relationship is reportedly the subject of a graphic novel, to be published by Forbes.
The book is titled “The Zen of Steve Jobs."
