Graduation season is upon us. And in honor of the many young men and women who are completing their educations and preparing to embark on an exciting new phase in their lives, I thought I would share some of the many wise and wonderful things that many wise and wonderful people have said to various graduating classes over the year.
Since my focus here is on books and literature, I decided to forgo the famous “Wear Sunscreen” speech and Kermit the Frog’s commencement speech to Southampton college and focus on speeches of a literary bent. I scoured YouTube and found these great commencement speeches by four writers and a Lannister. Enjoy!
