Commencement Speeches

Someday I'd like to give a commencement speech, and I hope it will be as good as this one by Steve Jobs (Via Newmark's door). Or maybe I'll fall back on this one by some Chicago Tribune Columnist remade into a song by Baz Luhrmann.

Here is the money quote from Jobs:

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.
Don't forget the sunscreen.
