bq. No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don’t want to die to get there. And yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because Death is very likely the single best invention of Life. It is Life’s change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new. Right now the new is you, but someday not too long from now, you will gradually become the old and be cleared away. Sorry to be so dramatic, but it is quite true.
I have stared at this screen for hours and couldn’t really find the words to describe the emotions when I learnt about his passing.
And I realised that it wouldn’t be what he want us to feel.
The best way to pay tribute to the life and work of Steve Jobs, is that if you own a Mac, or an iPhone or iPad, make full use of it. We don’t need to create something that will change the world like he did, but do something.
Type your next masterpiece, or simply clear up that long awaited To-Do list. Call up a friend or email a photo to your family.
He had spent his life creating tools for us to improve our lives so make full use of them.
Thank you and good bye, Steve.
