“If you saw Atlas, the giant who holds the world on his shoulders, if you saw that he stood, blood running down his chest, his knees buckling, his arms trembling but still trying to hold the world aloft with the last of his strength, and the greater his effort the heavier the world bore down upon his shoulders – What would you tell him?”

I…don’t know. What…could he do? What would you tell him?”

To shrug.”
― Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged

These days everybody praises steve jobs, as the best thing since sliced bread and therefore, everyone is on youtube watching the “stay young, stay foolish!” video (in fact while i’m writing this, a friend of mine just walked in the room with a shinning, silver and white, brand new ipod in her hand, surely her boyfriend’s christmas present).
However, I do find this next video much more interesting (Atlas Shrugged reloaded i guess).
