"When you grow up you tend to get told 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: 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."
— Steve Jobs
"The goal I have always pursued in my life is not to pretend that I have an infinite time on earth (or on a far lesser scale, that a nice holiday will last forever), but to not let the certainty of an ending compromise the quality of the experience in the meantime. Viewed in this way, endings are not to be feared, but rather add to the intensity of, and appreciation for, the time we have."
