Remembering Steve

“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.”Steve Jobs

What an amazing man. Thank you for all you have given the world, Steve. I will always always always be an Apple girl.

    He was such an amazing, inspiring, creative, visionary man. It is such an incredible loss.

    And I, too, will always be an Apple girl.

    Very sad. I’m an Apple girl too, although I always refer to it as the Dark Side. (Cos it sucks you in… so far I have Mac and Ipod and want an Iphone and am debating Ipad….).
    See? Dark side.

    I gasped when I opened my macbook this morning. I was expecting this as he was obviously very ill but it was so sad to see that he had died. Love the quote, BTW.

    I’m not an Apple girl at all….but a Steve fan for sure!

    Such a fantastic quote from a brilliant man. Thanks for sharing that one (hadn’t read it before).

    That speech you are referring to is wonderful and has so many nuggets of wisdom. I am an Apple girl too and Steve has changed my creative life.
    Stay young…stay foolish.

    What can’t I / won’t I write a post about him yet? He’s my hero. I’m an Apple Whore. I put flowers in front of shop nearby, changed my Facebook profile picture to honor him, and I just can’t yet bring my fingers to type about it yet…. ah grief. She has a way all her own doesn’t she. She leads, I follow.
