Words of Wisdom : "Stay Hungry, Stay Foolish"

This is one of the best things I have read in recent weeks. Extremely motivating. I have been feeling lost in my meaningless days at my corporate job that I know I should leave. Just don't know how. This speech reignited my spirit to follow through with what I truly love and not to settle. I just read it a couple of days back -- and it inspired me to begin re-focussing on my photography again and do something with it. Who knows if I will be anywhere as successful as Steve Jobs has been following his dreams, but at least it has given me a momentum. Here's an excerpt:
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 other's opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.
