Video and Transcript of Steve Jobs Stanford Commencement Speech

The Commencement address delivered by the CEO of Apple Computer and of Pixar Animation Studios, Steve Jobs, on June 12, 2005.

Jobs talked about three stories from his life in the address:

  • Birth and adoption
  • Love and loss
  • Death

And he ended his talk with the statement: “Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish.”

Watch the video to listen to one of the most inspiring speech Jobs had given in his life. If you want to read it all, it’s available in Text format in Stanford website.

On his death, yesterday, his talk about death makes a lot of sense:

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. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.
