"Stay hungry, stay foolish", Steve Jobs.

It's hard to imagine how one person can change how the whole world operates.
It deeply saddened me to know that Steve Jobs died today. He changed our world. He put chances in our lives by his inventions. He was an inspiration. He was our da Vinci. He taught us so many things, he opened our eyes. 

I've been admiring all this while, on his creations, on how he saw the world, how the littlest things turned into something so big, so vast that we can't really comprehend. I can't say thank you enough. 

It's not only his creations, he literally changed so many things. On how we talk with computers, imagine how there was a time when only programmers were capable of doing so. On how we live our life, imagine how there was a time when our entertainment focuses on TV, now we barely even watch one.  On how we can now have everything on our palm, anywhere, anytime. On how we communicate, entertain, work.

He said this :
"Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma, which is living with the result of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice, heart & intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary."

He reminds me so much of Randy Pausch, the writer of The Last Lecture, before he died of pancreatic cancer. On how both of them mentioned about their limited time, live everyday like it's their last day, cherish life, do what you are passionate about, and ignore the rest because they know they are going to die sooner, they had the time and they used it well. They touched people's heart. They became an inspiration.

"Time is the only commodity that matters".
So much things, too little time.

Oh dear.
