Stay Hungry, Stay Foolish

In doing some reading I came upon this transcript of Apple Computer Founder and CEO Steve Jobs' commencement speech to this year's graduating class at Stanford University. Through 3 stories, the story of his dropping out of Reed College after 6 months, the story of getting fired from Apple in the eighties, and the story of his cancer experience Steve captures the importance of curiosity, finding knowledge and beauty in hidden places, and loving what you do.

"Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your inner voice, heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary."

--Steve Jobs
