Quotes From Jobs, Hemingway, Chopin, and Tony Bennett

Here are some quotes I came across in recent weeks that I liked:

“Life teaches you how to live it, if you live long enough.” — Tony Bennett, speaking in the 2015 documentary Amy, about singer Amy Winehouse.

Steve Jobs: “…one of the ways that I believe people express their appreciation to the rest of humanity is to make something wonderful and put it out thereBut somehow, in the act of making something with a great deal of care and love, something is transmitted there. And it’s a way of expressing to the rest of our species our deep appreciation.”

“There is nothing noble in being superior to your fellow man; true nobility is being superior to your former self.” — Ernest Hemingway

“Reality is a cloud of possibilities, not a point.” — Amos Tversky

Simplicity is the final achievement. After one has played a vast quantity of notes and more notes, it is simplicity that emerges as the crowning reward of art.” — Frederic Chopin
