The Latin text on the Dictionary icon is Lorem Ipsum placeholder text from the publishing industry. When creating dummies to show off design elements or fonts, designers will often use Latin text to fill in the text boxes: “Lorem Ipsum Dolor Sit Amet Etiam.”

The TextEdit icon contains the words to the “Think Different” television commercials that Apple ran in the late 1990s.

“Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”

    The Keynote icon is extremely interesting, since Spring Awakening is not your average musical, featuring rather ‘adult’ themes. This particular song is about erotic dreams and onanism. See:
