Apple CEO Tim Cook on Inspirational Leaders

Apple CEO Tim Cook on Inspirational Leaders


– You know I was born
and raised in the south, and I saw, over the course of growing up, some of the worst behavior
in terms of discrimination that literally would make me sick. And I always felt that Kennedy, that Bobby Kennedy and Martin Luther King, did an incredible amount
for the whole world. And they didn’t solve it,
because it’s not solved today, but they moved, they moved
things forward in a major way. And not just for people
in the United States but for people, I think,
all over the world. And they knowingly risked
their lives for it, that it meant that much to them. And, both of them, I think,
if we were to have had the privilege of talking to
them the day before they died, they knew they were doing it. It’s not that it snuck up on them and they weren’t aware that
there were nuts out there that wanted to take them out. And they kept on anyway, and I think that is just so incredibly
impressive to me that someone would care
that much to do it. And so, that’s why. I have three photos in my office. Two are of Kennedy and one is King, that’s the only photos
I have in my office. I look at them every day. And I think they’re incredible
role models for all of us, incredible role models, and that’s not a political statement, that’s just a statement
about treating people fairly and so forth.

  1. This is the first time, I do like Tim Cook's speech! He was talking from his mind, and heart!

    With all my respect!

  2. The leader could not only define by letters of the words that has been spoken but in deeds, can touch the life of a simple person and be inspired.
