    1. You’re absolutely right. If you scroll down my page two or three posts, there’s a graduation speech that he presents which all that was taken from. It’s fantastic, if you haven’t seen it, definitely watch it.

      1. Of course I’ve seen it! My favorite part, though, is not where he says to “make good art.” It’s where he says that the best piece of advice he ever got was one that he didn’t take, and it was from Stephen King, and it was: “This is really great. You should enjoy it.”

      2. he said so many wonderful things in that. I especially liked the part about how he didn’t like doing work, so he did what he wanted and wrote and life has never felt like work. Man, that just… resonated in every way possible.
