It’s highest ideal is to make a computer so exciting, so wonderful, so interesting, that we never want to be without it.

 “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.”

Steven Paul Jobs (24. februar 1955 – 5. oktober 2011)
