jojo. in transit.: "Don’t be afraid to be a fool. Remember, you...



  1. Don’t be afraid to be a fool. Remember, you cannot be both young and wise. Young people who pretend to be wise to the ways of the world are mostly just cynics. Cynicism masquerades as wisdom, but it is the farthest thing from it. Because cynics don’t learn anything. Because cynicism is a self-imposed blindness, a rejection of the world because we are afraid it will hurt us or disappoint us. Cynics always say no. But saying yes begins things. Saying yes is how things grow. Saying yes leads to knowledge. "Yes" is for young people. So for as long as you have the strength to, say yes.

     Knox College commencement address 2006

    This is another quote I really like from tha man, Colbert, from the commencement address he made at my college. 

    While on topic, I played Rugby in college, for our team…the Col-Bears. HARHARHAR. Our mascot was a bear….with Colbert’s face……….true story.
