Anyway, there were seven speeches at his graduation and I thought at least three of them actually had inspiring, motivating, and truthful advice in them. Today on NPR, I found a college commencement speech that I thought was equally moving and I wanted to share. Here's an excerpt:
"Here's the point: When you are trying to create a version of yourself that will one day make you happy, half the battle isknow your insides — know your pleasures.
And the other half is to know your outsides — to find allies, partners, mentors.
You don't become yourself by yourself. You become you, boosted on others' shoulders, buoyed by others' smiles. You may be a singular person, but your success will always be plural."
By Robert Krulwich
