Don't Eat Fortune's Cookie



Love this.

Michael Lewis, a former art history major at Princeton, gives the 2012 baccalaureate speech at his alma mater entitled "Don't Eat Fortune's Cookie."

My favorite part:

"...don't be deceived by life's outcomes. Life's outcomes, while not entirely random, have a huge amount of luck baked into them. Above all, recognize that if you have had success, you have also had luck—and with luck comes obligation. You owe a debt, and not just to your Gods. You owe a debt to the unlucky."
(Read the book Moneyball before you see the movie. Liar's Poker is on my list of summer reads.)
