Information Technology Leader
here's to the crazy ones
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 quote them
disagree with them
glorify or vilify them
about the only thing you can’t do
is ignore them
because they've changed things
they pushed the human race forward
while some may 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
- S. Jobs (1997)
