One More Thing...

iSad Day.
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.”

"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. 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."

“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.”
 
"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."

"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."
1955-2011
