‘Your Heart Running Around Outside Your Body’

Eric Schmidt on Steve Jobs:

Steve and I were talking about children one time, and he said the problem with children is that they carry your heart with them. The exact phrase was, “It’s your heart running around outside your body.” That’s a Steve Jobs quote. He had a level of perception about feelings and emotions that was far beyond anything I’ve met in my entire life.

Update: Love the sentiment, but it’s not original to Jobs. It’s from Elizabeth Stone.
