Conan O’Brien’s Speech at Dartmouth

He tells his jokes, he jabs at Jay Leno, but about three-quarters through the speech Conan produces extremely insightful advice, relevant to what he has gone through over the past year and a half.

“There are few things more liberating in this life than having your worst fear realized…It is our failure to become our perceived ideal that ultimately defines us and makes us unique. It’s not easy, but if you accept your misfortune and handle it right, your perceived failure can become a catalyst for profound reinvention.”

Team Coco, ftw.
