I came across this quote by Steve Jobs. I think it resonated with me because Jesus said similar things long before Jobs bit into the apple. It's more than a pithy line for the trends of today. I believe this advice is the most upgraded version, so don't worry about something better coming down the pipeline. We really all could use this reminder when we find ourselves wanting for another persons life (or another persons phone).
“Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of other's opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” --Steve Jobs, American Entrepreneur, Apple Co-Founder
“Do not let your hearts be troubled.Trust in God; trust also in me. In my Father’s house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you (your uniqueness and your personality included)." --Jesus, John 14:1
"I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful I know that full well." David, Psalm 139:14
