Hi, I would like to share with you today very cool commencement speech given by Oprah Winfrey. It was in 2008, so it was a long time ago… or like the Bagger Vance said once to the Rannulph Junuh, it was just a moment ago, so please take a look by yourself.
It is a lot of great energy coming from this speech and I noted and find in the Internet two nice quotes. First is Speech to the Young: Speech to the Progress-Toward by Gwendolyn Brooks.
Say to them,
say to the down-keepers,
“even if you are not ready for day
it cannot always be night.”
You will be right.
For that is the hard home-run.
Live not for battles won.
Live not for the-end-of-the-song.
Live in the along.
And the second quote by Martin Luther King Jr. helps me to understand that I, as a coder and designer who creates software, can do a kind of service for my customers and I can to help them reach their business goals. Please just read. I hope you know how true it is.
“Not everybody can be famous, but everybody can be great because greatness is determined by service… You only need a heart full of grace and soul generated by love.”
At the end I would like to share commencement speech given again by Oprah Winfrey in 2013, so it was just a moment ago… 🙂
Do you see the progress? Do you like the first, second, or both speeches?
