RIP: Celebrities Tweet Reactions to Steve Jobs’ Death
Apple announced that 56-year-old Steve Jobs died today after a long battle against cancer. In response to this tragedy, celebrities have taken to Twitter to share their shock and thank him for all that he’s contributed to the tech world.
Grey's Anatomy showrunner Shonda Rhimes said: @shondarhimes Steve Jobs said it best: "Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything—all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure—these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. 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.” - Steve Jobs
