This was on NPR today and I thought all you grads might find it especially interesting and inspiring:
The Art of Living
How does one craft a truly meaningful life? What can we learn from the great philosophers on how to live well and beautifully, even when faced with adversity? We ask the big existential questions as we examine the art of living.
