In memory of Steve Jobs: "Stay hungry. Stay foolish"
... In 2005, Jobs gave the commencement speech at Stanford University that makes his most fitting eulogy. Even though he told the graduating students that his cancer had been cured, he shared his thoughts about facing death since his diagnosis about a year earlier. Thinking about death every day helped him overcome the natural fear of failure, he told them.
Drawing on his 1970s California hippie roots, Jobs invoked The Whole Earth Catalog, a hodgepodge of photos, articles and neat ideas — "one of the bibles of my generation," as Jobs put it. He remembered its slogan: "Stay hungry. Stay foolish." As Jobs said, "I have always wished that for myself. And now, as you graduate to begin anew, I wish that for you."
