a ding in the universe

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 others' 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, Stanford Commencement Speech, 2005

I'll take "Trowel-thick irony" for 1000, Alex.

For reference, and because thinking on it a bit shows a light I wasn't aiming at, I find that position from Jobs to be the ironic part. No shot intended to our lovely hostess.
