Thanks Steve, for that bicycle. I use it a lot. So does my son, my wife, my whole family. Each one in a different way, their own way. We’ve all traveled to new places on our bicycles. By the way, besides working really well, they are beautiful: sleek, elegant.

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.

They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary. — Stanford Commencement Speech, 2005
