The Last Lecture-Randy Pausch



I encourage you to spend 10 minutes and watch this video.It will make you cry and BE INSPIRED. It is one of the greatest lectures I have ever heard and orginally was given at Carnegie-Mellon University.

This video by this very brave man sums up so well my philosphy of life in just 10 minutes.

Watch and Be Moved!

Mahatma Gandhi : If you don't find God in the next person you meet, it is a waste of time looking for him further.

It is amazingly powerful, I agree. I wonder if I would be as courageous if faced with the same challenge. I'm not so sure. Thanks for sharing it.

Powerful lecture. The last line and photo got to me the most.

This is so moving.
I had to share it with my hubby.
Sounds like a good book for my travels.

A lecture about HIS life on the sunny side until the end became clear. Interesting and a tribute to his family.
Spending his last time to make money is fully acceptable. He has given his children a platform to continue life after his departure.
I have just seen the movie The Bucket list. That is also a way to spend your last moments.
Death has always a reason. Don´t think about that, let life continue.

Thank you for sharing this with me. It is nice to see someone share something from Oprah's show instead of always putting her down.

Thank you for posting that! I tried to watch this on you tube a while back but it wouldn't play all the way through.

I'm looking forward to reading his book as well.

I'm proud to be a tigger in life. :)
