We Really Wish Someone Would Import This Beautifully Designed Vietnamese Steve Jobs Calendar [Gallery]

A Vietnamese book publisher has just published a touching, beautifully designed 2012 memorial calendar to the life of Steve Jobs, filled with the most iconic Steve shots of the last thirty years and aspirational quotes from the fiery, passionate Apple founder himself on the way to live life.

The 2012 calendar is called “Be Hungry, Be Foolish” and features 14 photographs commemorating the most important moments in the life of Steve Jobs. Each page not only contains a full calendar, but also comes with a famous quote from Steve in both English and Vietnamese.

The 14th page features a photo-collage of 56 small pictures giving an overview of Steve’s life.

The “Be Hungry, Be Foolish” calendar seems like a no-brain Christmas gift for most Apple fans, especially given its gorgeous design, but unfortunately it does not appear to be available outside of Vietnam. If anyone knows where we can order one, let us know.

Here’s the complete calendar:

“Technology is nothing. What’s important is that you have a faith in people, that they’re basically good and smart, and if you give them tools, they’ll do wonderful things with them”.

“Bottom line is, I didn’t return to Apple to make a fortune. I’ve been very lucky in my life and already have one. When I was 25, my net worth was $100 million or so. I decided then that I wasn’t going to let it ruin my life. There’s no way you could ever spend it all, and I don’t view wealth as something that validates my intelligence”.

“Sometimes life hits you in the head with a brick. Don’t lose faith”.

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition”.
