Who doesn't love this time of year? Commencement speeches galore, the stars give compelling speeches to share their wisdom and lifelong advice.
The place: Duke University.
The purpose: Commencement Address.
The A-list cameo: Oprah Winfrey!
You may know by now that Oprah has a BFF named Gayle King. Well, Gayle's son, William, attended Duke and is officially an alumnus. Oprah gave his commencement address and noted that he never wants people to know that they know each other. She quips, "I'm like his crazy aunt that they let out at commencements."
Among Oprah's words of wisdom, she told the crowd of 4,440 Duke graduates to lend a hand. One of the best ways they can enhance their own life, she says, "Is to enhance somebody else's."
She also added that every day you have a chance to make the choice to stand in your own shoes. "Will you stand them in humility and compassion and courage," Oprah asks.
