Quote 18 Feb

“Nothing gave her so much pleasure as to hear about the world above the sea. She made her old grandmother tell her all she knew of the ships and of the towns, the people and the animals. To her it seemed most wonderful and beautiful to hear that the flowers of the land had fragrance, while those below the sea had none; that the trees of the forest were green; and that the fishes among the trees could sing so sweetly that it was a pleasure to listen to them. Her grandmother called the birds fishes, or the little mermaid would not have understood what was meant, for she had never seen birds.”

— “The Little Mermaid”

I read a compilation of Hans Christian Andersen’s writings in a Buzzfeed article. I found it refreshing. I really need to ration time  to spend time reading or just plain imagination. Imagination used to be my favorite activity.  I think Moore’s law also exists in life and we have information overload and as a consequence skills enhancement. I am imperfect but want to squeeze time for imagination. I want to read Hans Christian Andersen fairy tales.  I first read ” The Little Mermaid” in school.

Steve Jobs -You’ve got to find what you love

14 Feb

You’ve got to find what you love. And that is as true for your work as it is for your lovers. Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking until you find it. Don’t settle.

― Steve Jobs

I have been reading Steve Job’s Stanford speech for last few days as try to connect the dots of my life. I have always found Steve Jobs very inspirational much before iPhone came ( I still don’t own one ). The simple message is ” You’ve got to find what you love, whether it’s work or your lovers…”

 

More from Steve Jobs’s Stanford transcript:
“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. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”

Remember the most important words ” Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish.”

Happy Valentines day dear friends! I remember all my friends because what is love but ” any one who thinks about you, cares about you even for a brief minuscule of a  transient moment….”

Much love, Suresh
