Don't steal!
The government hates competition.

Work like you don't need the money,
love like you've never been hurt,
and dance like you do when nobody's watching.

Words from Steve Jobs

Life's dots connect

You can't connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something - your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever.

Love your work

The only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle.

Cease the day!

"If you live each day as if it was your last, someday you'll most certainly be right."
"If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?"
And whenever the answer has been "No" for too many days in a row, I know I need to change


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.

Live your life

Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life.


Have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become.

"Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish."

From the Commencement address by Steve Jobs, CEO of Apple Computer and of Pixar Animation Studios, delivered on June 12, 2005 at Stanford University

Happy Endings

I don't believe in happy endings. Happy endings are just stories that haven't finished yet.
