“Infuse your life with action”
These are some great words of wisdom that actor Bradley Whitford gave during his 2004 commencement speech to the University of Wisconsin-Madison:
“Infuse your life with action. Don’t wait for it to happen. Make it happen. Make your own future. Make your own hope. Make your own love. And whatever your beliefs, honor your creator, not by passively waiting for grace to come down from upon high, but by doing what you can to make grace happen — yourself, right now, right down here on Earth.”
