  1. That was lovely. Excellent advice all around. Everyone should take the time to listen to this address.

  2. “No one will ever ask you to do the thing you really want to do.”

    This is such good advice, for everyone everywhere.

    My dad is a huge Laurie Anderson fan. I’m going to pass this on to him and my mom!

  3. Career opportunities are the ones that never knock.
