Top 10 Commencement Speeches According to Time

I'm really honored and humbled to say that I was selected to be the student speaker at the UCLA Department of Communication Studies Class of 2014 Commencement Ceremony! It took me a long time to write a meaningful and exciting speech that will hopefully be worth listening to. I found this really great list of fantastic commencement speeches given by some pretty famous people. The following is from the #1 speech by David Foster Wallace: "'Learning how to think' really means learning how to exercise some control over how and what you think. It means being conscious and aware enough to choose what you pay attention to and to choose how you construct meaning from experience. Because if you cannot exercise this kind of choice in adult life, you will be totally hosed." I hope I can be as good as these guys! 1) David Foster Wallace, Kenyon, 2005 2) Steve Jobs, Stanford, 2005 3) Conan O'Brien, Harvard (Class Day), 2000 4) Russell Baker, Connecticut College, 1995 5) Winston Churchill, Harrow School, 1941 6) George Marshall, Harvard, 1947 7) John F. Kennedy, American University, 1963 8) Bradley Whitford, Wisconsin, 2006 9) Barbara Kingsolver, Duke, 2008 10) Stephen Colbert, Knox College, 2006

Well said @cityofkyle you're lucky to have had a professor who knew to share this advice; not all teachers are ready to show their students things that will actually enhance their lives. Why do we learn, if we aren't going to be affected by what we learn?
@amog32 very well said. It's often difficult though to uncover where our beliefs, thoughts and emotions come from especially if we are trying to do it ourselves. Moving beyond our biases and our subjectivity can be hard, but once you do, it's incredible what you can accomplish and how your mind can open up to the world
Congratulations @cityofkyle I'm sure you will be fantastic!
Wallace definitely has some unique ideas; I didnt know he had spoken at a commencement before. His idea that being conscious of how you think about things defines you is really very true. Without understanding your own ideas and convictions, how can you know anything about yourself?
I absolutely loved hearing Steve Jobs's commencement address. He's a great story teller and gave a really inspirational speech
