Steve Jobs: nooit meer dezelfde zijn

04 december 2011

When you grow up you, tend to get told that the world is the way it is and your life is just to live your life inside the world, try not to bash into the walls too much, try to have a nice family, have fun, save a little money. That’s a very limited life. Life can be much broader, once you discover one simple fact, and that is that everything around you that you call life was made up by people that were no smarter than you. And you can change it, you can influence it, you can build your own things that other people can use. Once you learn that, you’ll never be the same again.”

Jobs. Dit citaat horend en lezend moet ik denken aan zijn uitspraken over LSD en Bill Gates…en aan de brief van Albert Hofmann.
