Steve Jobs Passes Away

Today Steve Jobs moves on. Here's something I really appreciate from his beliefs:

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 others' 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. - Steve Jobs 2005 Stanford Commencement Address

Here's the URL of the complete speech:

While he lived a fruitful life, a lot of things had been said and written about him and to be as fair as possible I'm posting some URL's (not to tarnish anything, but to take a peek on how he lived as a human being - with all his faults and gifts).

Rest in Peace. Leaving a loved legacy truly immortalizes you and washes out everything else.
