Here is a collection of popular quotes from the Genius.
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 results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.
My favorite things in life don’t cost any money. It’s really clear that the most precious resource we all have is time.
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. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.
That’s been one of my mantras — focus and simplicity. Simple can be harder than complex; you have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple.
He is the one who changed and is affecting the world, he is unique and honoured.
He is a man who believed in:
If you live each day as if it was your last,
Some day you’ll most certainly be right
This is why he even worked the day before he died, and finally succumbed to cancer.
