What a legacy

Steve Jobs's speech during the 2005 commencement exercise at Stanford resurfaced during the week that he resigned from Apple Inc. He left due to health reasons particularly pancreatic cancer.

He carried a hefty chunk of Apple's market cap when he left, but the guy still has some money left in Wall Street. He owns some Disney shares, because the guy started the era of profitability and critical acclaim for Pixar.

In this speech, he said: "I'm convinced that the only thing that kept me going was that I loved what I did. 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."
