Peter Dinklage: Commencement Address

Here's some inspiration ... especially of interest for Game of Thrones fans: Peter Dinklage '91 Addresses Bennington College's Class of 2012. The speech was featured in NPR's best commencement speeches collection.

I waited a long time out in the world
before I gave myself permission to fail.
Please don't even bother asking.
Don't bother telling the world you are ready.
Show it. Do it.

Read it and see what you think; click the link to read the story at The Oatmeal site:
