“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, founder and CEO of Apple

    I really like the subdued colors to this, Beth. That green you used does it I think, because orange usually wakes me up. Interesting. Thank-you for sharing this one.
