a graduate’s speech
“I have a proclamation:
Let today be the last day we joke that we are stupid or crazy. It’s not clever to pretend we hate what we love, and it wasn’t wrong study it.
“Let today be the last day we dismiss our ambitions before we’ve started. Does the world need another artist who’s already given up?
“Let today be the first day we refuse to be embarrassed to be artists. Ironic detachment gets us nowhere….”
So now you’re a graduate. So, now what? Well, you only have one choice: Get a job and hope your genius will stop bugging you, or get a job and keep pursuing your calling.
Come on, Children…! The day of glory has arrived!
