Apple CEO Tim Cook honored Steve Jobs via a tweet on Tuesday, which would have been the late Apple co-founders's 60th birthday.

Jobs, who co-founded Apple in 1976 with Steve Wozniak and Ronald Wayne, died of pancreatic cancer in October of 2011.

The quote Cook tweeted is from Jobs' oft-cited commencement address at Stanford University in 2005. He said, in part: "Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle. As with all matters of the heart, you'll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking until you find it. Don't settle."
