---- Author unknown

A man was in his cabin in the middle of a terrible snow storm when he heard a feeble scratching at his door.

Steve Jobs Quotes

"I want to put a ding in the universe."

"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."

"People think focus means saying yes to the thing you've got to focus on.  But that's not what it means at all.  It means saying no to the hundred other good ideas that there are.  You have to pick carefully."

"Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose."

"Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower."
