we all know steve jobs was a creative genius. he has changed and impacted our world so profoundly and his legacy will no doubt live on, but it was this article, printed in yesterday's NYTimes, that gave a more personal glimpse into the building blocks of his inspiring spirit.
the article has kept me thinking...about life, about personal virtue, about the universe. he was a zen buddhist that prided himself on following his intuition and experiential learning... his wisdom definitely shines through.
below are a few life lessons that i'll keep with me...
*** “Fashion is what seems beautiful now but looks ugly later; art can be ugly at first but it becomes beautiful later.”
Steve always aspired to make beautiful later.
*** Love was his supreme virtue, his god of gods.
*** He believed that love happened all the time, everywhere.
*** Steve was humble.
*** Steve cultivated whimsy.
*** He treasured happiness.
*** He tried. He always, always tried, and always with love at the core of that effort.
