Positive thinking - nice lines

"Although water falls from a hill, it never thinks it had fallen;
It rises to run as an unstoppable river.
In Life too, if you fall, just rise and move on like the river."

and you on the opposite?
Simple just turn back and you will be the leader of the whole world.
Work smart."

Steve Jobs quote on design lesson of ipod

Can't help sharing this thought from Steve Jobs (Morning I found it here)

Look at the design of a lot of consumer products—they’re really complicated surfaces. We tried make something much more holistic and simple. When you first start off trying to solve a problem, the first solutions you come up with are very complex, and most people stop there. But if you keep going, and live with the problem and peel more layers of the onion off, you can often times arrive at some very elegant and simple solutions. Most people just don’t put in the time or energy to get there. We believe that customers are smart, and want objects which are well thought through.
