College commencement speeches are meant to give you hope while educating you about what to expect in the "real world." That's why you should listen to as many of them as possible. You might hear a tiny sentence that will change your entire life. See for yourself, because here are some of the most inspirational college commencement speeches of all time:
1. Jim Carrey
Jim Carrey is a hysterical actor, but he still has a lot of meaningful things to say about life. In this speech, he talks about how his father took the safe route instead of following his dreams and still ended up losing his job: "I learned many great lessons from my father, not the least of which was that you can fail at what you don’t want, so you might as well take a chance on doing what you love.” That's why you should always follow your passion, no matter how risky it may be.
