Steve Jobs spoke at the Stanford Commencement ceremony in 2005, with words that were very close and dear to his heart. Now that his transition has occurred, those words have a deeper penetration for each of us, because he spoke of the fragility of LIFE and the awareness of pending DEATH. It’s the same for all of us day to day, but Jobs knew his body was struggling. A few pieces from his speech that I found extremely moving:
Your time is limited…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…everything else is secondary.
