Words Of Wisdom

Paul Tudor Jones gave an excellent 9th grade Commencement speech. (taken from Michael Covel’s blog)

The focus of his speech was on failure: how to deal with it and how it makes you better (harder, faster, stronger), but one particular paragraph that wasn’t related to the topic struck me:

“Don’t get me wrong – serving others is really, really important. It truly is the secret to happiness in life. I swear to God. Money won’t do it. Fame won’t do it. Nor will sex, drugs, homeruns or high achievement. But now I am getting preachy.”

… What? Money and sex won’t do it? Damn. (just kidding, just kidding..)
