Jim Carrey Delivers a Funny and Poignant Commencement Address About Love, Fear, and Failure


Carrying on the recent theme of funny people delivering excellent college commencement speeches about going after dreams and a willingness to fail, Jim Carrey gave his own speech to the graduates of Maharishi University over the weekend that’s jam-packed with tons of great advice: “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 dare to ask the universe for it. I’m saying I’m the proof that you can ask the universe for it.” The whole video is well worth the watch, if for nothing else than the unveiling of his enormous black light painting “High Visibility.”
