Remembering Steve Jobs

October 06, 2011


He is the geek who created circuit boards. Yet he is also the same geek that insisted that complicated things can be beautiful. He took classes in typography and simplified technology because that's how it should be for everyone and he can do it. He simplified computing and made it a joy for people to consume content. He was a visionary in technology, but he was all that because he was also a philosopher of life. He lived exactly how he would have if every day was his last, and because of that, I am sad but not too sad because he made each day count. How many of us did that?
"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." - Steve Jobs 
He was known for heading the greatest tech company in the world. Yet at the same time, he is remembered by all the amazing quotes on life, to seize it by the fullest. He won't be remembered for these if he did't believe in them 100%. He won't be so visionary if he didn't live out those quotes.

Thank you Mr. Jobs, for giving the world all you had to offer.
