Steve Jobs.

One of the biggest inspirations in my life has passed away and I don’t even know what to say. It’s really hard to pick, choose and refine into a couple of lines all that Steve Jobs has stood for. But if there’s one thing I’d like I’d like to live by, it has to be this:

When you’re a carpenter making a beautiful chest of drawers, you’re not going to use a piece of plywood on the back, even though it faces the wall and nobody will ever see it. You’ll know it’s there, so you’re going to use a beautiful piece of wood on the back. For you to sleep well at night, the aesthetic, the quality, has to be carried all the way through.”
