Here are some inspiring words -Anonymous
Though these words were send to me in the name of Steve Jobs, but in absence of any firm source they can’t be attributed to Mr. Jobs.
Steve Jobs’ Last Words were “Oh..wow, Oh..wow, Oh..wow” as told by his sister and published at various media print and online.
These words convey great learning and inspiration.
By anyway, we should take a pause in life, look around, feel the love and cherish all what we do have, be grateful and do all the good what all we can to live a happy life filled with satisfaction and contentment.
Here goes these words:
“I reached the pinnacle of success in the business world. In others’ eyes, my life is an epitome of success.
However, aside from work, I have little joy. In the end, wealth is only a fact of life that I am accustomed to.
At this moment, lying on the sick bed and recalling my whole life, I realize that all the recognition and wealth that I took so much pride in, have paled and become meaningless in the face of impending death.
In the darkness, I look at the green lights from the life supporting machines and hear the humming mechanical sounds, I can feel the breath of god of death drawing closer…
Now I know, when we have accumulated sufficient wealth to last our lifetime, we should pursue other matters that are unrelated to wealth…
Should be something that is more important:
Perhaps relationships, perhaps art, perhaps a dream from younger days
Non-stop pursuing of wealth will only turn a person into a twisted being, just like me.
God gave us the senses to let us feel the love in everyone’s heart, not the illusions brought about by wealth.
The wealth I have won in my life I cannot bring with me. What I can bring is only the memories precipitated by love.
That’s the true riches which will follow you, accompany you, giving you strength and light to go on.
Love can travel a thousand miles. Life has no limit. Go where you want to go. Reach the height you want to reach. It is all in your heart and in your hands.
What is the most expensive bed in the world?
You can employ someone to drive the car for you, make money for you but you cannot have someone to bear the sickness for you.
Material things lost can be found. But there is one thing that can never be found when it is lost – Life.
When a person goes into the operating room, he will realize that there is one book that he has yet to finish reading – Book of Healthy Life.
Whichever stage in life we are at right now, with time, we will face the day when the curtain comes down.
Treasure Love for your family, love for your spouse, love for your friends.
Treat yourself well. Cherish others.”

The beginning part of the quotes are from a Chinese book Published late 2012.

Thanks for this useful info.
It would be useful to the readers.
Though a beautiful quote … its not by Steve Jobs … its from a poem “What the River Knows” by Wayne Fields …
The full poem …
“The best six doctors anywhere
And no one can deny it
Are sunshine, water, rest, and air
Exercise and diet.
These six will gladly you attend
If only you are willing
Your mind they’ll ease
Your will they’ll mend
And charge you not a shilling.”
The above poem was publised in 1990
Thanks for the information.
Unfortunately this quote has gone viral on social media. All I can say is if this quote were attributed to you or to someone you love, and it was inaccurate in reality, you would not be okay with the world reading it and making false assumptions about that person that you loved. False representation can defame a person and not only that, it can put the defamer in a spiritual state of negative karma.
but it does not “sound” like him (personal opinion).
The “Oh wow!” fits his personality more (again, personal opinion)

He said it to a doctor, the doctor released it how do I know I had the same doctors as Jobs, while fighting aml,, he said it, by the way the lie is the Wow wow wow his sister told, Steve jobs, and apple the most evil company in human history,, unarguable, the biggest slave owners in human history, Fact, fact Fact,, Kevin D. Blanch aml Leukemia fighter 801-452-1908
Bull. He doesn’t use the speaking style in that quote. Calling that number doesn’t prove a thing. What I do hear is quite a bit of hate directed towards Steve Jobs by you too.
We have a chance to give a priceless gift to all we may encounter.. It was given to us freely. Let us all embrace it a give it away.yes give it away FREELY.. the Gift of LOVE…….. Yes that peson is sharing hate, why? Jobs has passed away.No one can say what it will be like on the death bed..but Jobs did… Let wisdom come..
It is a great article to read but I am not sure if these words are steve jobs words because he pursued what he loved the most, he created a beautiful product and stayed as a great example of someone who pursued his passion not the wealth. He as keen changing the experiences of human lives and offer something that one has not experience ever before He led a very simple life (almost zen like) , doubt his love was anything material.

Steve jobs was pure evil slave owner how helped loot The United States,, fact fact fact,,
Bull. Your hatred is spilling out all over yourself.
To those who commented on the authenticity of this post.
I apologize if I have hurted any feelings to anyone.
I have edited the post in absence of any firm source.
Thanks for your suggestions and co-operation.
It’s an inspiring story but if you don’t know who the author is or it’s a proven fact, you should NOT post this as a last words of Steve Jobs. This is completely wrong. I hope you understand.
The story by itself can reach to so many, you don’t need to post it as what you did.
Have a good day
but why attribute Steve Jobs…attribute anonymous if need be
Yes I agree with those who said it doesn’t really matter who wrote the words, after all they do covey a great deal of truth. Jesus also states, “What good does it do a person to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul? Or what can a person exchange for their souls?” (Matthew 16:26. Mark 8:63).
The most important thing is your preparation for eternity. For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake and the Gospel’s will save it (Mark 8:36).
If you choose to continue to ignore God’s eternal love given in Christ then he will ignore you on judgement day when you pass from this temporal world into eternity. Consider the reality! Life on this earth is short! Jesus said, ” I am the way, the truth and the life; no one comes to the father but through me. ” (John 14:6, similar concept in Act 4:12)

It does matter, it’s a reputation at stake. Would you want your life to be depicted in an untrue manner that painted you out to be something you were not? Theres power in perception.
What do you mean by “someone”? Is someone YOU in particular? If not, why don’t you put the credit to whom authored it.
Someone isn’t me. I got this from one of my friend but don’t know who has authored it so can’t give credits. I have already mentioned I am not sure about whether the same are the Steve Jobs words. I found the words inspiring and hence I published.
This is completely absent from his sister’s eulogy describing his last hours. You should remove any mention of Jobs unless you can verify he said it. Otherwise it seems like shameless link bait, and completely at odds with the message. http://www.nytimes.com/2011/10/30/opinion/mona-simpsons-eulogy-for-steve-jobs.html?pagewanted=all&_r=0
Yes, not sure whether these are the sayings of Steve Jobs or just an interpretation by someone… However the words are inspirational and convey a great message.
What is your source for this quote? I have not seen this anywhere else?
I am not sure about the authenticity of these words. Whether they originated from Steve Jobs or are just interpretations by someone… But they are inspirational and convey a great message.
Do you know the source of this “Steve Jobs’ Last Words”? Where and when was it said?
I am not sure about the source, and whether they are his original words or just an interpretation by someone. However, they are inspirational and convey a great message.
Hi. I was wondering what your source is. I got this as a watsapp message and I am trying to see if Steve Jobs really did say this. can you please point to the link from where you got this? Thank You.

Nice words to reflect on. No need to attribute Steve Jobs. Doubtful they’re his words unless his family or close friends confirms them.
