Excellence and Compass

No wonder I love my Mac — it was made by a Pisces man (born Feb 24) who thinks like this:


Here's to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes ... the ones who see things differently ... they're not fond of rules.... You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can't do is ignore them because they change things ... they push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world are the ones who do.


We don't get a chance to do that many things, and every one should be really excellent. Because this is our life.


   — Steve Jobs, 1955 - 2011
   All from Quotes of the Day.

His famous  Stanford commencement speech is entitled "How to Live Before You Die."

To honor him and my own search for excellence, I post here a painting I have loved from the moment it appeared...I do not know if it is a "good" painting, I cannot know if anyone else will ever love it or purchase it, or even if I will ever want to sell it, and none of that matters...
