And since Windows just copied the Mac, it's likely that no personal computer would have them. If I had never dropped out, I would have never dropped in on this calligraphy class, and personal computers might not have the wonderful typography that they do. Of course it was impossible to connect the dots looking forward when I was in college. But it was very, very clear looking backward 10 years later. Steve Jobs

If you haven't found it yet, keep looking and don't settle. As with all matters of the heart, you'll know when you've found it. Steve Jobs
