Here's to the crazy ones!

Several weeks ago my husband traveled on a business trip to Apple Computers in California. Upon entering the lobby he paused to read a quote that was up on the wall and was so impressed by it that he wanted to get a copy of it, which he shared with me later that day.

So, if you're like me and you're someone who marches to the beat of your own drum, who does things your way and doesn't always follow the beaten path, this is for you.

“Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can praise them, disagree with them, quote them, disbelieve them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. The invent. They imagine. They heal. They explore. They create. They inspire. They push the human race forward. Maybe they have to be crazy. How else can you stare at an empty canvas and see a work of art? Or sit in silence and hear a song that’s never been written? Or gaze at a red planet and see a laboratory on wheels? We make tools for these people. While some see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
