Steve Jobs
24. February 1955 - 5. October 2011

“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.”

  3. May he rest in peace! Why don't we follow our heart and intuition more often?

  4. Haha, I think you'll get to keep your kidneys ;)
    I ordered it online for a bout 800 NOK, so about 100 E. Well worth it if you ask me!


  5. I love this quote. Wise words from a true visionary and leader. Rest in Peace Steve Jobs xx

  6. For those like me that remember the Mac symbols in the 1980's - today is definitely an Unhappy Mac day. My Mac changed my life.

  7. He was just brilliant on so many levels. This is advice we could all use. xo

    From now on,we should exploit cleverly his wonderful ideas.

  17. He was such an inspiring man....I remember the first time I saw a Mac. It was blue and the design was just perfect to me. It belonged to a family friend who kindly gave me the opportunity to use it. Apple products are part of my life. I work, I listen to the music, I read the news and I call my family and friends thanks to what Steve did and I do it with immense joy.
