On Wednesday afternoon, as most other tweets simply relayed the headline about Jobs's passing, Twitter user @jasonrick linked to the commencement address Jobs gave at Stanford University in June 2005.
Its headline is a quote from the address: "You've got to find what you love."
Here are two other quotes:
"Truth be told, this is the closest I've ever gotten to a college graduation." Jobs recounted how he dropped out during his first year at Reed College, but remained hungry to learn.
"I didn't see it then, but it turned out that getting fired from Apple was the best thing that could have ever happened to me. The heaviness of being successful was replaced by the lightness of being a beginner again, less sure about everything. It freed me to enter one of the most creative periods of my life." Failure had tempted him to run away from Silicon Valley. He didn't, and the rest is history.
