“I want you to be everything that is you, deep at the center of your being.”

-Alan Alda, from a commencement speech given at his daughter’s graduation from Connecticut College in 1980. You can read the entire speech here. It falls a little further on the generic, cheesy side than something I would generally recommend, but the fact that it’s basically a speech from father to daughter tempers the sweetness enough to make it enjoyable.
