The comedian Jim Carrey masterfully left graduates in awe as he shared with them his perspective on the “Journey of Life.” Click here to watch a shortened, 3-minute version of his speech.

Below are a few of his quotes:

“The effect you have on others is the most valuable currency there is.”

“We are not the avatars we create. We are the light that shines through. All else is smoke and mirrors.”

“Our eyes are not just viewers, they are also projectors.”

“Life doesn’t happen to you. It happens for you.”

“My soul is not contained within the limits of my body. My body is contained within the limitlessness of my soul.”

“Within each of us there is a silence, and when we experience that silence we connect with who we really are.”

“So many of us choose our path out of fear disguised as practicality. What we really want seems impossibly out of reach and ridiculous to expect so we never ask the universe for it. I’m living proof … ask the Universe for it … then work toward it while letting go how it will come to pass.”
