Adventure is just hardship with an inflated sense of self
– Orange is the new black
„When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down >happy<. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.” John Lennon (Found on pierakreis.ch)
Everything now should aim for:
Not too many regrets at the end, and those there will be, for sound enough reasons.
– Alain de Botton

An era has ended, and we now sit to reflect on our good fortune for having lived in a time when a true giant walked the Earth.
You can love or hate the man, his company, and his products. You can simply not care much either way. But there is no disputing that everything we know and think about technology today has been dramatically influenced in one way or another by Steve Jobs.
Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice.
Have the courage to follow your heart & intuition. They already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.
If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it.
Steve Jobs, 1955-2011
Sometimes you read something an you think: how nice that someone was able to write down exactely what you always wanted to say but didn’t find the right words.
