Poem 6: "To The Crazy Ones" . . . by Steve Jobs



“TO THE CRAZY ONES”
[By Steve Jobs; 1955-2011]

Here's to the Crazy Ones!
The round pegs in the square holes.
 
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 cannot do is ignore them.
 
They inventThey imagineThey heal.
They exploreThey createThey 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 kinds of 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."
