  • Ladies and gentlemen

  • please join me to welcome home Randy Pausch

  • I'm glad to be here today.

  • Hell, I'm glad to be anywhere today.

  • President Cohen asked me to come and give the charge to the graduates.I assure you

  • President Cohen asked me to come and give the charge to the graduates.I assure you

  • it's nothing compared to the charge you have just given me.

  • This is an incredible place.

  • I've seen it through so many lenses.

  • I saw it when I was a graduate student

  • that didn't get admitted

  • and none of them bother me.

  • and then somebody invited me back

  • and said that "Okay, we'll change our mind."

  • I saw it as a place that

  • that hired me back to be on the faculty many years later

  • and then gave me the chance to do what anybody wants to do

  • which is follow their passion follow their heart and do the things they're excited about.

  • The great thing about this university unlike almost all of the other ones I know of is that nobody gets in your way when you try to do it

  • and that's just fantastic.

  • To the degree that a human being can love an institution

  • I love this place

  • and I love all of the people and I'm very grateful to Jerry Cohen and everyone else

  • for all the kindness that has been shown to me.

  • Last August I was told it was likely that I had three to six months to live.

  • I'm on month nine now

  • Last August I was told it was likely that I had three to six months to live.

  • and I'm not going to get down and do any pushups

  • but there will be a short pickup basketball game later.

  • Somebody said to me, in light of those numbers,

  • "Wow, so you're really beating the Grimm Reaper."

  • and what I said without even thinking about it is

  • that we don't beat the reaper by living longer.

  • We beat the Reaper by living well and living fully,

  • for the Reaper will come for all of us.

  • The question is what do we do between the time we're born and the time he shows up,

  • because when he shows up it's too late to do all the things

  • that you always want to kind of get around to.

  • I think the only advice I can give you on how to live your life well

  • is first off remember,

  • it's a cliché but I love clichés,

  • it is not the things we do in live that we regret on our deathbed.

  • It is the things we do not.

  • I assure you I've done a lot of really stupid things

  • All of the mistakes

  • and all of the dopey things

  • and all of the times I was embarrassed,

  • they don't matter.

  • What matters is that

  • What matters is that I can look back and say

  • pretty much anytime I got a chance to do something cool I tried to grab for it.

  • That's where my solace comes from.

  • The second thing that I would add to that and I didn't coordinate on the subject of this word, but I think it's the right word that comes up,

  • is passion.

  • You will need to find your passion.

  • Many of you have already done it.

  • Many of you will later.

  • Many of you may take until your 30's or 40's

  • but don't give up on finding it

  • because then all you're doing is waiting for the Reaper.

  • Find your passion and follow it.

  • If there is anything I have learned in my life

  • you will not find that passion in things

  • and you will not find that passion in money

  • because the more things and the more money you have

  • the more you will just look around and use that as the metric and there will always be someone with more.

  • Your passion must come from the things that fill you from the inside.

  • Honors and awards are nice things

  • but only to the extent that they regard the real respect from your peers.

  • To be thought well of by other people that you think even more highly of is a tremendous honor that I've been granted.

  • Find your passion, and in my experience,

  • no matter what you do at work or

  • what you do in official settings that passion will be grounded in people.

  • It will be grounded in the relationships you have with people

  • and what they think of you

  • when your time comes.

  • If you can gain the respect of those around you

  • and the passion and the true love,

  • and I've said this before, I waited until 39 to get married

  • because I had to wait that long

  • to find someone whose happiness was more important than mine.

  • If nothing else I hope that all of you can find that kind of passion

  • and that kind of love in your life. Thank you.
