And sometimes, the most inspiring quotes are not the longest.

On the contrary, they tend to be small. Very small. Like two words long.

Did you find your favorite two word quote?

Mine is “Stay foolish” which resonates with me deeply.

It reminds me of 3 important things:

  1. Life is hard and you must keep moving forward, no matter what happens.
  2. Life doesn’t always make sense. That’s why you need to “stay foolish to stay sane”.
  3. Life is a game and you must not take it too seriously. After all, we all die. (I know it seems dire, but it’s also liberating)

By the way, the idea for “Stay foolish” came from Steve Jobs’s famous quote “Stay hungry, stay foolish.

Those words were the final words in his commencement speech at Stanford in 2005.
