Steven Paul Jobs and the Meaning of Life

By -

Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure… than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat. – Theodore Roosevelt

I never knew how deeply in love I was with Steve Jobs until the day he died.

And I can say, without any exaggeration, that he looms in my life as a Christ-like figure.

Does this mean I believe he is in some way divine? The son of God, perhaps? No, not exactly; that role was taken a couple thousand years ago.
