Sheryl Sandberg, Barnard College Commencement 2011 "Don’t let your fears overwhelm your desire. Let the barriers you face -- and there will be barriers -- be external, not internal. Fortune does favor the bold, and I promise that you will never know what you’re capable of unless you try."
Wellesley High School teacher David McCullough, Jr., told graduating seniors in his commencement speech, "You are not special." This is an amazing speech worth listening to, as it really tells us how we ought to view ourselves in the world and live our lives in it. And it's funny too.

Find a path, and a little light to see by. Every single spiritual tradition says the same three things: 1) Live in the now, as often as you can, a breath here, a moment there. 2) You reap exactly what you sow. 3) You must take care of the poor, or you are so doomed that we can’t help you. You don’t have to go overseas. There are people right here who are poor in spirit; worried, depressed, dancing as fast as they can, whose kids are sick, or whose retirement savings are gone. Anne Lamott.
