A Useful Perspective on Life from the Late Steve Jobs

Although I was not one of those people who wanted to deify Steve Jobs, he did make a perceptive comment a few years ago:

"Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose," Mr. Jobs said in a commencement speech at Stanford University in June 2005, almost a year after he was diagnosed with cancer.

Being kind to your fellow human beings and your dog may matter too. One should not speak ill of the dead (unless absolutely necessary). So I feel duty-bound to say: I have no particular reason to think Mr. Jobs mistreated his dog (if he had a dog). Cf.

Steve Jobs Defended His Work With a Barbed Tongue
"In Steve Jobs’s efforts to reshape the high-tech industry, he gained a reputation for making often cutting comments about competitors and to his own staff. etc."
