    This is the third(?) time I'm watching this video since my mom showed it to me. Almost a decade later, I'm studying at one of the universities where he used to teach.
    I now realize that many of my past decisions were inspired and shaped by the lessons that Randy highlights in this talk (and reinforced by my parents). Hopefully one day I can inspire and help others the way Randy has.
    On to the next brick wall

    I was brought here by Christopher Hitchens cutting evaluation of this talk: "this video is so sickly sweet that it should come with a health warning and an insulin shot".

    And although I know exactly what he meant, I did enjoy the first hour.

    I’m in 8th grade. My advisory teacher told me about the book because I had told him that I didn’t have my own to read, he walked up to me with the book. I was skeptical at first, but he left it in the table, and I decided to grab it. I’m only on page 22 (the lecture part) incredible, outstanding book. This speech is so wonderful I am very moved and touched by this, I really enjoyed reading the first 22 pages, I will ask finish reading it, but may I just thank him for telling me about this. Wonderful read :))

    I try to watch this in December, when the thrill and memories of Christmas clash with the cold and dreary gloom of January. It is good medicine for the soul. Thank You Randy Pausch

    It's inteesting how self confident he was. It's pretty easy to accomplish things when you already think you can.

    BS your critics are the ones who care. I get what he means, but when people stop talking to you about what you're doing, it's because they have given up on ruining it for you and making you stop. Now you can go ahead, have fun, do whatever you want and no criticism.

    The part that gets me about this lecture is the fact that Randy did not come there to get pity or everyone to feel sorry for him due to having months to live. However, Randy came there to inspire other people and give advice on life. I wish there were more people like him because we live in a world where people think about self, including those who fake having cancer to gain that type of attention. I tip my hat to Randy and for him making a wonderful speech like that because it allowed me to live life the way I want even though if I am going through hell and back. It also taught me to never give up and if I want something badly, go for it. I am happy that my psychology professor had me and my whole class watch this.
