Topic: Steve Jobs’ Last Words
Do you know Steve Jobs? He was the CEO and maker of iPad…iPhone etc
He died a billionaire, and here are his last words On the sick bed
Steve Jobs’ Last Words –
I reached the pinnacle of success in the business world.
In others’ eyes, my life is the epitome of success.
However, aside from work, I have little joy. In the end, wealth is only a fact of life that I am accustomed to.
At this moment, lying on the sick bed and recalling my whole life, I realize that all the recognition and wealth that I took so much pride in, have paled and become meaningless in the face of impending death.
In the darkness, I look at the green lights from the life-supporting machines and hear the humming mechanical sounds, I can feel the breath of the god of death drawing closer…
Now I know, when we have accumulated sufficient wealth to last our lifetime, we should pursue other matters that are unrelated to wealth…
Should be something that is more important:
Perhaps relationships, perhaps art, perhaps a dream from younger days …
Non-stop pursuit of wealth will only turn a person into a twisted being, just like me.
God gave us the senses to let us feel the love in everyone’s heart, not the illusions brought about by wealth.
The wealth I have won in my life I cannot bring with me.
What I can bring is only the memories precipitated by love.
That’s the true riches that will follow you, accompany you, giving you strength and light to go on.
Love can travel a thousand miles. Life has no limit. Go where you want to go.
Reach the height you want to reach. It is all in your heart and in your hands.
What is the most expensive bed in the world? – “Sick bed” …
You can employ someone to drive the car for you, make money for you but you cannot have someone to bear the sickness for you.
Material things lost can be found. But there is one thing that can never be found when it is lost – “Life”.
When a person goes into the operating room, he will realize that there is one book that he has yet to finish reading – “Book of Healthy Life”.
Whichever stage in life we are at right now, with time, we will face the day when the curtain comes down.
Treasure Love for your family, love for your spouse, love for your friends…
Treat yourself well. Cherish others.
As we grow older, and hence wiser, we slowly realize that wearing a $300. or $30.00 watch – – – – – – – they both tell the same time…
Whether we carry a $300 or $30.00 wallet/handbag – – – – – – – the amount of money inside is the same;
Whether we drink a bottle of $300 or $10 wine – – – – – – – – – – – – the hangover is the same;
Whether the house we live in is 300 or 3000 sq. ft. – – – – – – – – loneliness is the same.
You will realize, your true inner happiness does not come from the material things of this world.
Whether you fly first or economy class, if the plane goes down – – – – – – –you go down with it…
Therefore…I hope you realize, when you have mates, buddies and old friends, brothers, and sisters, who you chat with, laugh with, talk with, have sing songs with, talk about north-south-east-west or heaven and earth,… That is true happiness!!
