iQuote the Legendary Steve Jobs

By now, you would know that Steve Jobs has died from pancreatic cancer, but he has left us with wonderful, amazing creations.

I salute thee, Steve Jobs. I hope I can find my own happiness just like you did. Your thoughts have influenced me and made me feel what I feel today.

You are a great loss to this world.

Get to know his thoughts about life, work and happiness.

"You can't connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something – your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life." [Stanford commencement speech, 2005]

When my dad died (God bless his soul), I never understood why He allowed for such thing. During those dark days, I have found solace in a quote I've read somewhere: We live life forward, but we can only understand it if we read it backwards. This is similar to what Steve Jobs believe in.
“I’ll always stay connected with Apple. I hope that throughout my life I’ll sort of have the thread of my life and the thread of Apple weave in and out of each other, like a tapestry. There may be a few years when I’m not there, but I’ll always come back.” [Playboy, Feb. 1, 1985]

I can always like comparing our life connections with life thread. The thought originated from the Mythology stories back in high school -- how witches cut our thread of life when we die. Here's Dear Dearie {my poem}, which illustrates this concept.
"Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle. As with all matters of the heart, you'll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking until you find it. Don't settle." [Stanford commencement speech, 2005]

This particular Steve Job quote is one of the many things that conjured the happiness mantra that I am overthinking of.

Rest in Peace, Steve Jobs. You are alive in every song playing from the iPod, in every opened application in iPad, in our every modern living moment.
