Of all the Steve Jobs’ quotes being printed, this line in his 2005 Stanford graduation speech says it all to me:
“…have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.”
Steve Jobs always felt like an old friend to me. I bought one of the first Apple II computers, being thrilled with the potential to do, at home, what I previously had to use punch cards to do at the University’s mainframe computer center. I’ve been a very loyal and proud user of Apple products ever since 1977. Apple products are a part of my life and have always been a positive partner in what I do. I’ll miss Steve Jobs and his vision, his creativity and his wonderful ability to present the new products Apple is producing. I know that I am but one of millions and millions of people in this world who feel this way. I grieve for his wife and children who have lost an incredible husband and father.
Below is a version of the iconic “Think Different” commercial that launched this ad campaign in 1997. This version is narrated by Steve.
