Conan O’Brien gave this valuable advice at his 2000 Harvard commencement speech:
“So that’s what I wish for all of you — the bad as well as the good. Fall
down. Make a mess. Break something occasionally. Know that your mistakes
are your own unique way of getting to where you need to be. And
remember that the story is never over…I will go now to make bigger
mistakes and to embarrass this fine institution even more.”
