In 2005, Jobs presented a commencement speech at Stanford University that captured the hearts of many people through his use of emotion and rhetoric. By breaking down his speech into three parts he was able to develop one overlying theme, never give up until you find something you love. The three stories he decided to share included connecting the dots, love and loss, and death. His use of appropriate delivery and language, coupled with his established credibility as an innovator allowed for a commencement address that is now unforgettable to many people. “Your time is limited, so don 't waste it living someone else 's life,” is a predominant quote from Steve Jobs’ commencement speech at Stanford University (para. 20).
