In Memory of Steven Paul Jobs

In memory of Steven Paul Jobs, here is a 1997 Apple advertisement that Steve Jobs narrated himself.

“Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo.

You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you cant do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward.

And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”

Editor’s Note: Steve Jobs owed his widely recognized intuition and creativity to an absolute belief in the value of intuition and  his devotion to Zen Buddhism and eastern spiritual philosophies. He engaged in regular Zen Buddhist meditation practice.

Steven Paul Jobs (February 24, 1955 – October 5, 2011) was an American entrepreneur, marketer, and an inventor who was the cofounder, chairman, and CEO of Apple, Inc.
