It’s graduation season and Mama O is out there blessing the Class of 2017 with some pretty awesome advice!
According to PEOPLE, on Saturday morning Oprah Winfrey delivered an inspiring commencement speech at Agnes Scott College in Atlanta where she stressed to the graduates that being true to yourself and having substance trumps material things and financial wealth.
“You’re nothing if you’re not the truth,” the 63-year-old said to the crowd during the school’s 128th commencement ceremony.
“I’ve made a living, I’ve made a life – I’ve made a fortune, really – all good! – from being true to myself. If I can leave you with any message today: The biggest reward is not financial benefits, though it’s really good, you can get a lot of great shoes! “Those of you who have a lot of shoes know having a closet full of shoes doesn’t fill up your life. Living a life of substance can. Substance through your service.”
