Your Time is Limited

Your time is limited,
don't waste it living someone else's life.

Don't be trapped by dogma, which is living the result of other people's thinking.

Don't let the noise of other's opinion drown your own inner voice.

And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition, they somehow already know what you truly want to become.


Everything else is secondary.
Steve Jobs

  26. Terrific photographs, Farmchick, especially the top one. The quote is from Jobs' commencement address at Harvard a couple of years ago, isn't it?

    BTW, as I scrolled down the photos, I started giggling as I recalled the Jimmie Fallon send-up of Neil Young's "Whip My Hair." If you haven't seen it, go to Youtube.

  30. I am always wary about quotes from billionaries, but in this lovely contest even these slightly egomaniacal words take a fresher and more sincere flavour.

  31. Great post!
    Great pics!
    I spent too many years being what someone else thought I should be.
    Now I'm on my way to becoming what I WANT to be. Yay!!

  39. You couldn't have picked a better set of photos for this quote. Great post. There's something about the gut reaction of the heart, a lesson in there for me and it's good to be able to have advice to in times of need.

  40. The hair makes the pix, of course. Kids are great, aren't they. Of course, after watching her bounce, I need a nap.
