Cleverness is a gift. Kindness is a choice.
~ Jeff Bezos, Amazon Founder
In May, Jeff Bezos addressed the 2010 graduating class at Princeton University. In the segment that follows, Bezos offers a thoughtful anecdote about what matters more than talents and concludes his speech by exhorting the students to go "build yourself a great story." Whatever our stage of life, we all, I think, have the opportunity to create our own lasting story. It simply takes heeding Bezos' advice to remember that "we are our choices."
