Today, we hear the news that Steve Jobs is taking leave of absence from Apple, on medical grounds. This is the second time; and, last time, his illness was extremely serious.
While hoping that this is much less serious, I am unfortunately reminded of the proverb in “The Alchemist” by Paulo Coelho:
Everything that happens once can never happen again.
But everything that happens twice will surely happen a third time.
Let’s hope not and wish Steve Jobs all the very best for a full recovery!
