Roose Bolt : It hurt me hearing about his wife

notareal nameblah : I’ve never let my schooling get in the way of my education I won't have a problem with you if you aim high and miss, but I will have a real problem if you aim low and hit If you think you can or if you think you can't, you’re right Rather be a hour early then a minute late You are what you repeatedly do, therefore excellence ought to be a habit, not an act You may be tough, but always remember to be kind Ego is the anesthesia that deadens the pain of stupidity, pride is the burden of a foolish person If you’re going to do a job, do it right Good isn’t good enough if it can be better, and better isn’t good enough if it can be best I’m not worried you won't be successful, I’m worried that you won’t fail time to time Son, just stand. No matter how rough the sea you keep standing.

manumitir : I hate that they always feel the need to put this feel-good music over these videos to make you get all emotional. That artifice actually undermines the value of what’s being said, or at least that’s how I see it.

BakedTopato : The simplest lessons are usually the most impactful. Think about kindergarten what did they teach you? Work hard, be nice, share, be respectful, ect. All those sound simple but if you follow those thoroughly and rigorously in everything you do you will be successful, that's all it is.

cloud flores : Oh man that got me "maybe one of my boys Will catch me in the act of excellence"!

Ben Emerson : I’ve never let my schooling get in the way of my education I won't have a problem with you if you aim high and miss, but I will have a real problem if you aim low and hit If you think you can or if you think you can't, you’re right Rather be a hour early then a minute late You are what you repeatedly do, therefore excellence ought to be a habit, not an act You may be tough, but always remember to be kind Ego is the anesthesia that deadens the pain of stupidity, pride is the burden of a foolish person If you’re going to do a job, do it right Good isn’t good enough if it can be better, and better isn’t good enough if it can be best I’m not worried you won't be successful, I’m worried that you won’t fail time to time Son, just stand.

The Inspiration : "May God richly bless you all." - This is one of the greatest ending line of speech I have ever heard in my life. Thank you so much, Rick Rigsby Sir for this Great, Inspiring and Meaningful Speech which has Real-life Examples, Hope, Gratitude and Words of Wisdom. Wish you a Blissful, Wonderful and Peaceful Time in the Universe :)

। Hossain : i start to crying unfortunately after listen about his wife death

TF Stormii : You are what you repeatedly do, therefore excellence ought to be a habit not an act.

Prakash Sunuwar : I felt really bad and cried because after this speech I realized how underated have I lived till now! And that was sad. I'm never gonna live that way now.

ScienceWorld : This man just combined humor and wisdom into one well-constructed speech. The best to him, God bless!

Marc Kitkat : I wanna meet this man

scientific method perspective : Although I went to school for years upon years, I'll say: doesn't take a science degree to be a scientist and be scientific. Doesn't take a graduate or age to be wise. Look inward and grow your soul and mind. Virtue of excellence.

Nixum Me : Honestly I feel the same way. The wisest person in my life is my dad. Someone who's working as a welder right now. Even though I truly believe that he's a little blinded by money. "Don't be content with being good at something. It's fine to take a step back to rest for some time. But if you do it too long the steps you will take will be only backwards."

zTrophyz : Am I the only one who watches this everyday?

Trey plays : Wisest most humorous man

XnTrik S/W Philly : This guy is the white version of me! I’m a 7th grade drop out that learned early That the wise man knows that he knows nothing! (Socrates) my best friends grandfather was my first teacher, an old black man that served his country and his fellow man & my friend thought he was old fashioned! But i grew up without a father and longed for that man 2 man interaction, THANK YOU MR GORDON WHERE EVER YOU ARE.
