Steve Jobs’ Last Words

Steve Jobs’ Last Words


Someone I respect sent the following thoughts and indicated that they were some of Steve Jobs’ “later” thoughts on life. I don’t know if they were actually Steve Jobs’ thoughts or not.

I can tell you that whoever wrote this essay shows clear and powerful thoughts on the priorities of life. Therefore, the words below, (reportedly written) at the end of Steve Jobs’ life are still very enlightening, and very worth a read.

Steve Jobs’ Last Words — an exceptional essay by someone on the priorities of life:

“I reached the pinnacle of success in the business world. In others’ eyes, my life is an epitome of success.

However, aside from work, I have little joy. In the end, wealth is only a fact of life that I am accustomed to.

At this moment, lying on the sick bed and recalling my whole life, I realize that all the recognition and wealth that I took so much pride in, have paled and become meaningless in the face of impending death.

In the darkness, I look at the green lights from the life supporting machines and hear the humming mechanical sounds, I can feel the breath of god of death drawing closer…

Now I know, when we have accumulated sufficient wealth to last our lifetime, we should pursue other matters that are unrelated to wealth…

Should be something that is more important:
Perhaps relationships, perhaps art, perhaps a dream from younger days

Non-stop pursuing of wealth will only turn a person into a twisted being, just like me.

God gave us the senses to let us feel the love in everyone’s heart, not the illusions brought about by wealth.

The wealth I have won in my life I cannot bring with me. What I can bring is only the memories precipitated by love.

That’s the true riches which will follow you, accompany you, giving you strength and light to go on.

Love can travel a thousand miles. Life has no limit. Go where you want to go. Reach the height you want to reach. It is all in your heart and in your hands.

What is the most expensive bed in the world? Sick bed

You can employ someone to drive the car for you, make money for you but you cannot have someone to bear the sickness for you.

Material things lost can be found. But there is one thing that can never be found when it is lost – Life.

When a person goes into the operating room, he will realize that there is one book that he has yet to finish reading – Book of Healthy Life.

Whichever stage in life we are at right now, with time, we will face the day when the curtain comes down.

Treasure Love for your family, love for your spouse, love for your friends.
Treat yourself well. Cherish others.”

Scary/ sobering/ thought provoking/ poignant thoughts…

Yes, even if this isn’t exactly what Steve Jobs said, it is a very valuable perspective on the ultimate meaning of life!

I hope this precipitates you to ask yourself: what is the meaning of “MY” life?

I’d be interested to hear your reactions…
