"You've got to find what you love" Steve Jobs

The other day Carmen was telling me she knew about a very good speech given by Steve Jobs in Stanford and she wanted to share it in the blog, but we already have it here from a previous year. And I thought it would be a great present for you this Xmas.

This speech was given by Steve Jobs to the students who were graduating at the University of Stanford in June 2005. To me, it is one of the most inspiring, moving and great speeches ever given.

"Who's Steve Jobs?" some of you may wonder. He's the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Apple, Pixar animations, .... You can read all about him in the English Wikipedia.

We'll work on some vocabulary using the text of the speech which was published in the Stanford University website.
Follow-up to the text / video.

Here is the link to the video with English subtitles part 1 and English subtitles part 2.

It's a very interesting argument. It's very emotional for me. My favourite part is an argument of death, is very philosophical. And I love the phrase: "Stay hungry. Stay foolish." I wish everyone understood the meaning of those words. It's very emotional.

I think this video is very interesting. Personally I liked all stories, especially the second story.
When he lost his job, Mr. Jobs began again and finish again in "Apple" but this time having created Pixar and NeXT.
I think this man was an example of not giving up and keep doing you like.
