Personal Quote:

[Giving a commencement speech to students at the University of Wisconsin in 2003] Nobody else is paying as much attention to your failures as you are. You're the only ones who are obsessed with the importance of your own life. To everyone else, it's just a blip on the radar screen, so just move on. See more »
