"Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish"

"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... Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish." -Steve Jobs, commencement speech at Stanford, June 12, 2005. This highly popular speech has been widely viewed and frequently quoted, especially the closing line. Like many people, I am a great admirer of Steve Jobs. If you haven't heard the speech, I encourage you to watch the video, or read the transcript text.
