Mash-Up of Commencement 2012 Speeches

with 4 comments

I love quotes.  They are soundbites of wisdom.  Commencement speeches are filled with such soundbites, so I spent part of my Memorial Day weekend creating a mash-up of quotes from the commencement speeches by Aaron Sorkin, Adam Savage, Oprah Winfrey, Barack and Michelle Obama, Jane Lynch, Maria Shriver, Colin Powell.  FYI – Aaron Sorkin’s and Adam Savage’s were my favorite speeches.

  2. Surround yourself with a circle of the wise -> advice I heard years ago and take so literally that a folder in my RSS Reader is named “My circle” !

    • You have a gift of surrounding yourself with wise people as you are a wise person, yourself, Durff.
