What would you impart in a final, farewell lecture?

Randy Pausch, a 46-year-old computer-science professor at Carnegie Mellon University, has terminal cancer and expects to live for just a few more months. He gave his last lecture at the university Sept. 18, 2007, before a packed McConomy Auditorium.

His lecture touched upon lessons learned throughout his life. He gave advice to students on how to achieve their own career and personal goals. It was incredibly inspiring.

Here are a couple of my favorite quotes from the lecture:

„Brick walls are there for a reason. They let us prove how badly we want things.“

„It is not about how you achieve your dreams, it’s about to lead your life. If you lead your life the right way, the karma will take care of itself. The dreams will come to you.“

„Wait long enough and people will almost always surprise and impress you.“

„You value an experience, if you get what you don’t want.“
