There is lots of ways to be as a person. And some people express their deep appreciation in different ways. But one of the ways that I believe people express their appreciation to the rest of the humanity is to make something wonderful and put it out there. And you never meet the people, you never shake their hands, you never hear their story or tell yours but somehow in the act of making something with a great deal of care and love something is transmitted there. And it is a way of expressing to the rest of our species our deep appreciation. So we need to be true to who we are and remember what is really important to us. That is what is going to keep apple.. Apple.. Is if we keep us us.
When you grow up, you tend to get told the world is the way it is and your life is just to live your life inside the world. Try not to bash into the walls too much. Try to have a nice family life, have fun, save a little money. That's a very limited life. Life can be much broader once you discover one simple fact. And that is: Everything around you that you call life was made up by people that were no smarter than you. And you can change it, you can influence it, you can build your own things that other people can use. Once you learn that, you'll never be the same again.
