Tim Cook has often remembered Steve Jobs in his posts and speeches. Last year on his birth anniversary, he had remembered the American businessman on his death anniversary with a quote from Maya Angelou.

According to 9to5Mac, Tim Cook also spoke of Steve Jobs when he delivered the commencement address at Stanford University last year.
“Fourteen years ago, Steve stood on this stage and told your predecessors, ‘your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life’,” he said. “Here’s my corollary: Your mentors may leave you prepared, but they can’t leave you ready.
“When Steve got sick, I had hardwired my thinking to believe that he would get better. I not only thought he would hold on, I was convinced down to my core that he’d still be guiding Apple long after I myself was gone.”
