15 World-Class Commencement Addresses

Steve Jobs – 2005 Stanford Commencement Address
 – “Sometimes life hits you in the head with a brick. Don’t lose faith. I’m convinced that the only thing that kept me going [after being fired from Apple] was that I loved what I did. You’ve got to find what you love. And that is as true for your work as it is for your lovers. 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.”

Arnold Schwarzenegger – 2009 USC Commencement Address
 –  “Just remember, you can’t climb the ladder of success with your hands in your pockets.”
 – “Trust Yourself. Break some rules. Don’t be afraid to fail. Ignore the naysayers. Work like hell. Give something back.”

JK Rowling – 2008 Harvard Commencement Address
 – “You might never fail on the scale I did. But some failure in life is inevitable. It is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all. In which case, you fail by default.”
 – “We do not need magic to change the world, we carry all the power we need inside ourselves already: we have the power to imagine better.”

Larry Page – University of Michigan Commencement Address
 – “I think it is often easier to make progress on mega-ambitious dreams. Since no one else is crazy enough to do it, you have little competition. In fact, there are so few people this crazy that I feel like I know them all by first name.”
 – “You know what it’s like to wake up in the middle of the night with a vivid dream? And you know that if you don’t have a pencil and pad by the bed, it will be completely gone by the next morning. Sometimes it’s important to wake up and stop dreaming. When a really great dream shows up, grab it.”

Eric Schmidt – 2009 Carnegie Mellon Commencement Address
 – “You’ll find today is the best chance you have to start being unreasonable, to demand excellence, to drive change, to make everything happen.”
 – “How should you behave? Well, do things in a group. Don’t do things by yourself. Groups are stronger, groups are faster. None of us is as smart as all of us.”

Winston Churchill – 1941 Harrow School Commencement Address
 – “Never give in. Never give in. Never, never, never, never — in nothing, great or small, large or petty — never give in, except to convictions of honor and good sense.”

Bono – 2004 University Of Pennsylvania Commencement Address
 – “The world is more malleable than you think, and it’s waiting for you to hammer it into shape. Now if I were a folksinger, I’d immediately launch into “If I Had a Hammer” right now, get you all singing and swaying. But as I say I come from punk rock, so I’d rather have the bloody hammer right here in my fist. That’s what this degree of yours is, a blunt instrument. So go forth and build something with it… This is the time for bold measures. This is the country, and you are the generation.”

Conan O’Brien – 2000 Harvard University Commencement Address (Part 1) And (Part 2)
 – “What I wish for all of you—the bad as well as the good. Fall down. Make a mess. Break something occasionally. Know that your mistakes are your own unique way of getting to where you need to be. And remember that the story is never over… I will go now to make bigger mistakes and to embarrass this fine institution even more.”

Sheryl Sandberg – 2014 Harvard Business School Commencement Address
 – “Look for opportunities; look for growth; look for impact; look for mission. Move sideways; move down; move on; move off. Build your skills, not your resume. Evaluate what you can do, not the title they’re going to give you. Do real work. Take a sales quota, a line role, an ops job. Don’t plan too much, and don’t expect a direct climb. If I had mapped out my career when I was sitting where you are, I would have missed my career.”

Jeff Bezos – 2010 Princeton University Commencement Address
 – “Cleverness is a gift, kindness is a choice. Gifts are easy — they’re given after all. Choices can be hard. You can seduce yourself with your gifts if you’re not careful, and if you do, it’ll probably be to the detriment of your choices.”
 – “Tomorrow, in a very real sense, your life — the life you author from scratch on your own — begins. How will you use your gifts? What choices will you make? Will inertia be your guide, or will you follow your passions? Will you follow dogma, or will you be original? Will you choose a life of ease, or a life of service and adventure? Will you wilt under criticism, or will you follow your convictions? Will you bluff it out when you’re wrong, or will you apologize? Will you guard your heart against rejection, or will you act when you fall in love? Will you play it safe, or will you be a little bit swashbuckling? When it’s tough, will you give up, or will you be relentless? Will you be a cynic, or will you be a builder? Will you be clever at the expense of others, or will you be kind?”

Robert Krulwich – 2011 Berkeley Commencement Address
 – “In every career, your job is to make and tell stories, of course. You will build a body of work, but you will also build a body of affection, with the people you’ve helped who’ve helped you back. This is the era of Friends in Low Places. The ones you meet now, who will notice you, challenge you, work with you, and watch your back. Maybe they will be your strength.”

Stephen Colbert – 2006 Knox College Commencement Address
 – “Don’t be afraid to be a fool. Remember, you cannot be both young and wise. Young people who pretend to be wise to the ways of the world are mostly just cynics. Cynicism masquerades as wisdom, but it is the farthest thing from it. Because cynics don’t learn anything. Because cynicism is a self-imposed blindness, a rejection of the world because we are afraid it will hurt us or disappoint us. Cynics always say no. But saying yes begins things. Saying yes is how things grow. Saying yes leads to knowledge. “Yes” is for young people. So for as long as you have the strength to, say yes.”

Russell Baker – 1995 Connecticut College Commencement Address
 – “Listen once in a while. It’s amazing what you can hear. On a hot summer day in the country, you can hear the corn growing, the crack of a tin roof buckling under the power of the sun. In a real old-fashioned parlor silence so deep you can hear the dust settling on the velveteen settee, you might hear the footsteps of something sinister gaining on you, or a heart-stoppingly beautiful phrase from Mozart you haven’t heard since childhood, or the voice of somebody — now gone — whom you loved. Or sometime when you’re talking up a storm so brilliant, so charming that you can hardly believe how wonderful you are, pause just a moment and listen to yourself. It’s good for the soul to hear yourself as others hear you, and next time maybe, just maybe, you will not talk so much, so loudly, so brilliantly, so charmingly, so utterly shamelessly foolishly.”

John F. Kennedy – 1963 American University Commencement Address
 – “Let us examine our attitude toward peace itself. Too many of us think it is impossible. Too many think it unreal. But that is a dangerous, defeatist belief. It leads to the conclusion that war is inevitable, that mankind is doomed, that we are gripped by forces we cannot control.”
 – “We need not accept that view. Our problems are man-made — therefore, they can be solved by man. And man can be as big as he wants. No problem of human destiny is beyond human beings. Man’s reason and spirit have often solved the seemingly unsolvable — and we believe they can do it again.”

Charlie Munger – 2007 USC Law School Commencement Address
 – “You’re not going to get very far in life based on what you already know. You’re going to advance in life by what you’re going to learn after you leave here.”
 – “Education doesn’t stop after you graduate from college. It doesn’t stop after you finish your MBA or Ph.D. either. Wisdom acquisition is a moral duty. It’s not just something you do to advance in life.”

American Capitalism’s Great Crisis — TIME Article

Where Words Fail, Music Speaks – 30 Enriching Song Lyrics

An eclectic yet meaningful list of lyrics that my staff has put together. They come from a variety of different kinds of songs – each one being either thought-provoking, value resetting, or just plain interesting “takes” that the artist had on a not-often-enough-recognized aspect of life. Slow down for five minutes and reflect on these lyrics – both for their value to you as well as a window into the values of others.


“Well my ship’s been split to splinters and it’s sinking fast
I’m drowning in the poison, got no future, got no past
But my heart is not weary, it’s light and it’s free
I’ve got nothing but affection for all those who sailed with me”

Just be yourself
It doesn’t matter if that’s good enough for someone else”

Seldom turns out the way it does in the song.
Once in a while you get shown the light
In the strangest of places if you look at it right.”
Grateful Dead – Scarlet Begonias

You’ve got the music in you
One dance left
This world is gonna pull through

You’ve got a reason to live
Can’t forget
We only get what we give”

Don’t carry the world upon your shoulders
For well you know that it’s a fool who plays it cool
By making his world a little colder”

You can comb your hair and look quite cute
You can hide your face behind a smile

Is when you’re crippled inside”

“God have mercy on the man
Who doubts what he’s sure of”
Bruce Springsteen – Brilliant Disguise

A functioning cog in some great machinery serving something beyond me”

“Have you ever seen a one-legged man trying to dance his way free?
If you’ve ever seen a one-legged man then you’ve seen me”

Nothing worth having comes without some kind of fight
Got to kick at the darkness ’til it bleeds daylight
When you’re lovers in a dangerous time”

And people are just too much for me to face
I climb way up to the top of the stairs
And all my cares just drift right into space”

Learn from these streets, it can be bleak,
Accept no defeat, surrender retreat”

It’s a wonder I can think at all
Though my lack of education hasn’t hurt me much
I can read the writings on the walls”
Simon and Garfunkel – Kodachrome


“Then take me disappearin’ through the smoke rings of my mind
Down the foggy ruins of time, far past the frozen leaves
The haunted, frightened trees, out to the windy beach
Far from the twisted reach of crazy sorrow
Yes, to dance beneath the diamond sky with one hand waving free
Silhouetted by the sea, circled by the circus sands
With all memory and fate driven deep beneath the waves
Let me forget about today until tomorrow.”
Bob Dylan – Mr. Tambourine Man

If I fail, if I succeed
At least I’ll live as I believe
No matter what they take from me
They can’t take away my dignity
Because the greatest love of all
Is happening to me
I found the greatest love of all
Inside of me”
 Whitney Houston – Greatest Love of All


“But if you only have love for your own race
Then you only leave space to discriminate
And to discriminate only generates hate
And when you hate then you’re bound to get irate, yeah
Madness is what you demonstrate
And that’s exactly how anger works and operates
Now, you gotta have love just to set it straight
Take control of your mind and meditate
Let your soul gravitate to the love”
The Black Eyed Peas – Where Is The Love?


“When the day that lies ahead of me
Seems impossible to face
When someone else instead of me
Always seems to know the way
Then I look at you
And the world’s alright with me
Just one look at you
And I know it’s gonna be
A lovely day…”
Bill Withers – Lovely Day

Just a mortal with potential of a superman
I’m living on”
David Bowie – Quicksand

When I bit off more than I could chew
But through it all, when there was doubt
I ate it up and spit it out
I faced it all and I stood tall and did it my way”
 Frank Sinatra – My Way


“I’ve been a puppet, a pauper, a pirate, a poet, a pawn and a king
I’ve been up and down and over and out and I know one thing
Each time I find myself flat on my face
I pick myself up and get back in the race”
Frank Sinatra – That’s Life

But it’ll feel like it”

Dreamers learn to steer by the stars
All of us do time in the gutter
Dreamers turn to look at the cars”

“It’s the heart that fears breaking
That never learns to dance
It’s the dream, afraid of waking
That never takes the chance
It’s the one, who won’t be taken
Who can not seem to give
And the soul afraid of dying
That never learns to live”
Amanda McBroom – The Rose


“If the future’s looking dark
We’re the ones who have to shine
If there’s no one in control
We’re the ones who draw the line
Though we live in trying times
We’re the ones who have to try
Though we know that time has wings
We’re the ones who have to fly…”
Rush – Everyday Glory 


“You can run but you cannot hide, this is widely known.
Tell me, what you plan to do with your foolish pride when you’re all by yourself, alone.
Once you tell somebody the way that you feel, you can feel it beginning to ease.
I think it’s true what they say about the squeaky wheel always getting the grease.
Better to shower the people you love with love, show them the way that you feel.
Things are gonna be just fine if you only will what I’d like to do to you.”
James Taylor – Shower The People
