Randy Pausch’s Last Lecture: Achieving Your Childhood Dreams.

A while back, I was given a YouTube address from a contact I acquired as a result of the Blackcabquotes project. It features a motivational speaker giving his last lecture. His name is Randy Pausch and his last lecture, (which may bring some of you close to tears) goes on for just over an hour, and is certainly more enlightening than the average omnibus edition of Coronation Street or Eastenders.

This is the link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ji5_MqicxSo  and below are some quotes which I have taken from his last lecture.

“Be good at something as it makes you valuable.”

 

 “No one is all evil.” 

 

“Luck is where preparation meets opportunity.” 

 

“If you lead your life the right way, the karma will take care of itself, the dream will come to you.” 

 

“When people give you feedback, cherish it and use it.” 

 

“Brick walls are there for a reason, they let us prove how badly we want things.” 

 

“Find the best in everybody.” 

 

“If you’re going to do anything that’s pioneering, you will get those arrows in the back.”
