parole agli studenti di Stanford: "Stay hungry, stay foolish", che si può tradurre con "Non siate mai sazi e soddisfatti, pensate fuori dal coro".
“When I was 17, I read a quote that went something like: "If you live each day as if it was your last, someday you'll most certainly be right." It made an impression on me, and since then, for the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: "If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?" And whenever the answer has been "No" for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.
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.
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".
La crisi che stiamo vivendo ha tra le sue radici l'omologazione del pensiero, da me definita in un post una brutta bestia
Riflettiamo prima di agire. Non dobbiamo aver paura della nostra libertà di pensiero.
Caro Steve Jobs, ti sia lieve la terra.
