The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; a man whose face is covered with dust, and sweat, and blood; who, if he wins, realizes the thrill of high achievement, and if he fails, fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory or defeat.

Do not fear death. Death is always at our side. When we show fear, it jumps at us faster than light, but if we do not show fear, it casts its eye upon us gently and then guides us into infinity.

“Here’s to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes… The ones who see things differently — they’re not fond of rules… You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can’t do is ignore them because they change things… They push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do.”

Steve Jobs
