When it comes to graduation, many students look forward to their commencement speeches the most. While many schools have high-ranking professors or various faculty members deliver the speech, there are others who grab celebrities and distinguished public personalities to share their experience and words of encouragement.

NPR is a pool of intelligent conversation, podcasts and the like, so when it set its mind to an intellectual endeavour, it usually delivers with something great. This particular venture is an aggregation of the best commencement speech quotes from the likes of Stephen Colbert, Whoophi Goldberg and many other famous people.

Graduation is the end of an era, but as these people read it, it's only the beginning of something much bigger and better for these young graduates.
