Advice from Patton Oswalt's commencement speech given at the high school he graduated from. (
"Reputation, Posterity and Cool are traps. They'll drain the life from your life. Reputation, Posterity and Cool = Fear. AND There Is No Them." "Amen, brother. Although, think about all of the great art we'd be missing out on if 18yo actually took it."
