An Inspiring Commencement Address
On Wednesdays, I share posts, fables, songs, poems, quotations, TEDx Talks, cartoons, and books that have inspired and motivated me on my writing journey. I hope these posts will give writers, artists, and other creatives a mid-week boost.
Six years have passed since the death of Steve Jobs, one of the most innovative leaders of our time. His legacy has been a far-reaching one, inspiring young and old alike to follow their dreams. In addition to changing our lives with innovative products, he has left us many memorable words. His commencement address to the class of 2005 at Sanford University has been watched by millions worldwide.
My favorite quotes…
Stay hungry, stay foolish.
Have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.
Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life.
Death is very likely the single best invention of life. It clears out the old to make way for the new.
You have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future.
