Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self. - Cyril Connolly

'You've got to find what you love,'
Now THIS is a commencement speech!! In fact, I liked this so much, I think I'm going to print it out, laminate it, and stick it in the top desk drawer at my new job to remind me why I'm there and to not take it for granted.
You've got to find what you love. And that is as true for your work as it is for your lovers. Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle. As with all matters of the heart, you'll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking until you find it. Don't settle.

    It's a shame that the punchline is that all the new grads nodded and applauded, and then went off to try and get oil tankers named after them.

    Goddamn Steve Jobs is cool.
