Here's To The Crazy Ones

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 invent. They imagine. They heal. They explore. They create. They inspire. They push the human race forward.
Maybe they have to be crazy.
How else can you stare at an empty canvas and see a work of art? Or sit in silence and hear a song that’s never been written? Or gaze at a red planet and see a laboratory on wheels?
We make tools for these kinds of people.
While some 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.

Just finished watching the film based on Steve Jobs. I've read all the negative reviews, but I gotta say, I enjoyed it. Ashton Kutcher surprised me. I didn't know much about the story of Apple or Steve Jobs, or his character so it may just be that I didn't spend the entire film comparing the two. I didn't see Ashton Kutcher in the role though, which usually is in some of his other work. I was impressed.

I love the drive Jobs had and how he never took no for an answer. He did it his own way, and did it if only to prove all the other people wrong. He had a passion and an eye for perfection and never stepped away for that; not for profit and not to impress other people. Anybody can succeed, as long as you have the drive and passion to do so. Opportunities don't come knocking, you have to bang down the doors yourself. On another note, I also am in love with this quote, so here you go. Happy Friday, all!

Maybe this quote will help me get through my English midterm...
