In the early 1980s, Apple Computer was a small company living in the shadow of IBM. Co-founder Steve Jobs hung a poster behind his desk: IBM's "THINK" motto, in the stylized colors of Apple's trademark logo.
It reflected Jobs' philosophy perfectly: “The minute you understand that you can poke life and actually something will, you know if you push in, something will pop out the other side, that you can change it, you can mold it. That’s the most important thing. It’s to shake off this erroneous notion that life is there and you’re just gonna live in it, versus embrace it, change it, improve it, make your mark upon it.”
Ratified in January of 1919 but enacted a year later, the 18th Amendment to the U. S. Constitution made the manufacturing and retail of alcohol illegal for nearly 13 years—but not the consumption of alcohol, which was a bit of a loophole.
With the 21st Amendment going into effect on December 5th, 1933, Prohibition was officially repealed, states were allowed to set their own alcohol-control laws, and the unofficial U.S.A. Drinking Team was founded. Wanna join? Already a member? Look the part in this lightweight raglan, featuring a 3/4 sleeve. Cheers!
Stay hungry. Stay foolish. It originated in 1974 as the farewell message on the back page of the Whole Earth Catalog, a counter-culture magazine that got the attention of one transcendent icon: Steve Jobs.
Beginning in 1968 when communal living and self-reliance were becoming popular trends in America, the catalog published by Stewart Brand combined articles and product reviews to promote "ecology, self-sufficiency and do-it-yourself projects." The concept catalog quickly took off. Legendary inventor and Apple cofounder Steve Jobs regarded the publication as his personal Bible, and after seeing its sign-off message, he adopted the four words as his mantra.
In 2005 he instantly popularized the motto when he shared it with Stanford graduates during his now-famous commencement speech, and just like Jobs, HOMAGE wishes to pass it on: Stay hungry. Stay foolish.
