Apple today commemorated the tenth anniversary of the death of Steve Jobs with a commemorative home page on his website, including images and a link to a short film that captures some of his most memorable quotes and moments at the helm of Apple.
The homepage also includes a statement from the Jobs family, reproduced below:
For a decade now, grief and healing have gone hand in hand.
Our gratitude has grown as great as our loss.
Each of us has found our own path to consolation,
but we came together in a beautiful place of love
for Steve, and for what he taught us.
Despite all of Steve’s gifts, it is his teaching power that has endured. He taught us to be open to the beauty of the world, to be curious about new ideas, to see the next turn and most of all to stay humble in our own beginner’s mind.
There is a lot that we still see through his eyes, but he
learned to seek oneself. He gave us material to live,
and it has served us well.
One of our greatest sources of solace has been our association of Steve with beauty. The sight of something beautiful – a wooded hill, a well-made object – reminds us of his spirit. Even in his years of suffering, he never lost his faith in the beauty of existence.
Memory is insufficient for what is in our hearts: we miss it deeply. We were lucky to have him as a husband and father.
Also in commemoration, former Apple design chief Jony Ive wrote a remembrance of his friend and colleague for the the Wall Street newspaper Magazine.
