Notable February 24 birthday:

Steve Jobs ( 1955 - 2011 ), cofounder Apple Inc.:

“Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it.”

“I’ve always been attracted to the more revolutionary changes. I don’t know why. Because they’re harder. They’re much more stressful emotionally. And you usually go through a period where everybody tells you that you’ve completely failed.”

“Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.”

“Getting fired from Apple was the best thing that could have ever happened to me. The heaviness of being successful was replaced by the lightness of being a beginner again. It freed me to enter one of the most creative periods of my life.”

“It's really hard to design products by focus groups. A lot of times, people don't know what they want until you show it to them.”

“The people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do.”

“For the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: ‘If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?’ And whenever the answer has been ‘No’ for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.”

“I’m as proud of many of the things we haven’t done as the things we have done. Innovation is saying no to a thousand things.”

“Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it.”

“Quality is more important than quantity. One home run is much better than two doubles.”

“Be a yardstick of quality. Some people aren’t used to an environment where excellence is expected.”

“That’s been one of my mantras—focus and simplicity. Simple can be harder than complex; you have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple.”

“Being the richest man in the cemetery doesn’t matter to me. Going to bed at night saying we’ve done something wonderful...that’s what matters to me.”

“I'm convinced that about half of what separates successful entrepreneurs from the non-successful ones is pure perseverance.”

“Technology is nothing. What’s important is that you have a faith in people, that they’re basically good and smart, and if you give them tools, they’ll do wonderful things with them.”

“Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower.”

“My favorite things in life don’t cost any money. It’s really clear that the most precious resource we all have is time.”

“Have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow know what you truly want to become.”

“My model for business is The Beatles: They were four guys that kept each others’ negative tendencies in check; they balanced each other. And the total was greater than the sum of the parts.”

“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.”

“We don’t get a chance to do that many things, and everyone should be really excellent. Because this is our life. Life is brief, and then you die, you know? And we’ve all chosen to do this with our lives. So, it better be damn good. It better be worth it.”

“Sometimes when you innovate, you make mistakes. It is best to admit them quickly and get on with improving your other innovations.”

“You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something—your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.”

“Sometimes life is going to hit you in the head with a brick. Don’t lose faith.”

“I want to put a ding in the universe.” reports news from the 99%. You do the research.

Former President Trump said today that Putin is outsmarting the Biden administration: “This is genius. Putin declares a big portion of Ukraine as independent. So Putin is now saying it’s independent—a large section of Ukraine. I said, 'How smart is that?' And he’s gonna go in and be a peacekeeper. That’s the strongest peace force. We could use that on our southern border. They’re gonna keep peace alright. No, but think of it. Here’s a guy who is very savvy. I know him very well. You gotta say, that’s pretty savvy and you know the response from Biden? There was no response. They didn’t have one for that.”
These endocrine disrupters are absolute poison there are so many people out there with these symptoms where the body is disintegrating and meds simply accelerate the decline. This is unreal no one is being held accountable as these are rolled out to the public. Accutane and Propecia are in the same group. I'm aware of people who are bedbound and have lost almost all tissue from these drugs. Their lives were destroyed. This is criminal and negligent, pharma buried the side profile while the authorities turn a blind eye and fail to acknowledge the numbers.
If I gave you pure bacteria and you don’t get sick, then I gave you pure viral particles and you don’t get sick, then are we getting each other sick?

Kira S. I'm pretty sick of every place I call or email telling me to "Stay Safe". Is the utility company employee really that concerned about my safety?? Also, staying safe implies that there is some action I should be taking. What, pray tell, telephone company payment processing person, is the action you'd like me to take to ensure this "safety"? Safe against what,  or whom? Constant Threat Fear Conditioning. Just Stop Already!

Susan F. Ugh, so am I! Along with one more frigging Covid commercial, I swear I will throw my TV out the god damn door! No joke.
