One of his best quote
"Remembering that I'll be dead soon is the most important tool I've ever encounteree to
 help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything-all external expectations,
 all pride,all fear of embarrassment or failure- these things just fall away in the face of
 death, leaving only what is truly important.  Remembering that you are going to die is the
 best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already
 naked.  there is no reason not to follow your heart" - Steve Jobs
