This collection of commencement speeches by celebrities not only offers rich insight, fascinating stories and valuable advice for recently graduated students, but also for adults. These speeches tackle tough societal problems that aren’t faced exclusively by Generation Y.

In what has evolved into one of the most popular and well-known commencement speeches ever, Steve Jobs urges his young audience to not waste a second of their lives doing something they are not entirely passionate about. Jobs encourages the audience to dedicate as much time to the things they love because life is too short.

Oprah Winfrey, on the other hand, promotes a life where the world acts as one’s classroom from the moment they are born until the moment they die.

J.K. Rowling describes the values of failure in life. While the majority do all it takes to avoid experiences of failure, she believes that are necessary in defining people.

These commencement speeches by celebrities are eye-opening, endearing and packed with information.
