Today’s “w.o.w.” Is a quote that my grandmother said to me often when I was young…
“Keep your eyes on the stars and your feet on the ground” – Theodore Roosevelt
“Minds are like parachutes – they only function when open.” – Thomas Dewar
“I am not discouraged, because every wrong attempt discarded is another step forward.” – Thomas Edison
“Most of the shadows of life are caused by standing in our own sunshine.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
Charlie Day, comedian/actor of “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” fame delivers a memorable commencement address to Merrimack College graduates.
While Charlie Day wouldn’t necessarily strike you as a serious choice, he really nails it.
Personally, I think it’s one of the best commencement addresses that I’ve ever heard. It’s a memorable, honest, funny and heartfelt speech that will truly surprise you.
