Question of the Day

Frank Warren, the artist behind Post Secret, recently delivered the commencement address at St. Mary’s College in Maryland. In preparation for it, he asked members of the graduating class to write a one-sentence response to the question “What do my classmates, and I, need to hear on Graduation Day?” Here are a few of his responses:

Be wise enough not to be reckless, but brave enough to take great risks.

It’s okay to fail – learn from it and you will succeed.

It’s better to be pissed-off than pissed-on.

If you were to asked to deliver a commencement speech that was only one sentence long, what would it be?

Get as rich as you can as fast as you can (responsibly) so that you can do what you really want to do sooner rather than later. And use some of your wealth to make the world a better place while you're at it. (Sorry - that's more than one sentence)

“Work like you don't need the money, love like you've never been hurt, dance like no one is watching, screw like it's being filmed, and drink like a true Irishman”... I know, it's not original, but it's what I needed to hear when I graduated!
