I want to put a ding in the universe !

Posted on April 24, 2012


 I love quotes , I love how so much wisdom can sometimes be condensed in a few sentences. I love how a few words, put articulately can strike a chord with me on so many inexplicable levels.Words that awaken, inspire, enlighten me.

And I love sharing these words with you, with the hope that in some small way, I might have made you think twice, take notice, change something! That I may have inspired you to harbour hope, believe and pluck the courage to pursue your dreams.That I may have encouraged you to Think Different.

Today, as I was researching for a possible future post , I came across a piece of text  so powerful , I wanted to know more about where it originated, which is when I stumbled upon this video and could not believe that I had never seen it before. Released in 1997 ,you may have seen this or like me , you may not have heard of it until today , either way it is worth every second , here have a look :

Narrated by none other than Steve Jobs himself , here is the text to this ad campaign that marked the return of Apple Inc ;

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. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. While some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.

How could I not have shared these most inspiring words with you ?

I too , like Steve want to put a ding in the universe , do you ?
