Oprah gives Harvard commencement address
Oprah Winfrey has just gotten her degree from Harvard and all she had do was giving some inspirational words! The media maven delivered a very encouraging commencement speech yesterday as she told the Harvard class of 2013 that there is no such thing as failure. Rather, the moments that don’t turn out quite as you had hoped are really just life’s way of putting you on the path you really need to be on.
“It doesn’t matter how far you might rise, at some point you are bound to stumble,” Oprah warned them. “When you do, remember this: there is no such thing as failure. Failure is just life trying to move us in another direction.”
She continued, “When you are down in the hole, it’s really okay to feel bad for a little while. Give yourself time to mourn what you think you may have lost, but then learn from every mistake.”
