“Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life.”
Steve Jobs, Stanford Commencement Speech 2005, about 9 minutes in. (But I’d still recommend an Android phone.)
“Of all forms of caution, caution in love is perhaps the most fatal to true happiness.”
“I don’t want to achieve immortality through my work. I want to achieve it by not dying.”
(Last year’s quotations here).
