Steve Jobs' Stanford Commencement Speech

I'm not sure that someone who dropped out of college after six months would have been my first choice to give a commencement speech, but Steve Jobs' address sure was a good one. A Sample:
You've got to find what you love, and that is as true for work as it is for your lovers. Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work, and the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking, and don't settle. As with all matters of the heart, you'll know when you find it, and like any great relationship it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking. Don't settle.
The whole thing is worth reading.
