Jim Carrey Delivers Inspiring Commencement Speech

Jim Carrey gave a commencement speech Saturday for The Maharishi University of Management in Iowa. Jim Carrey chose to go into comedy after watching his dad struggle as an accountant. The commencement speech was filled with wisdom and was just as inspiring and humorous as expected. Some of his best quotes are below.

“I learned many great lessons from my father, not the least of which was that you could fail at what you don’t love, so you might as well take a chance on doing what you love.”

“What’s the purpose of your life? How will you serve the world? What do they need that your talent can provide? That’s all you have to figure out. As someone who’s done what you’re about to go and do, I can tell you from experience the effect you have on others is the most valuable currency there is.”

Carrey received the honorary degree of Doctor of Fine Arts Honoris Caus during the graduation ceremony.
