WORK HARD, BE KIND. CONAN O'BRIEN'S 2011 DARTMOUTH COMMENCEMENT ADDRESS
"No specific job or career goal defines me, and it should not define you. In 2000—in 2000—I told graduates to not be afraid to fail, and I still believe that. But today I tell you that whether you fear it or not, disappointment will come. The beauty is that through disappointment you can gain clarity, and with clarity comes conviction and true originality." -Conan O'Brien
'Work hard, be kind and amazing things will happen,' O'Brien says
