Presidential Speeches

Commencement
Charge to the Graduates

May 19, 2013

Thank you for choosing Manchester. We are stronger because you have been here. I offer you five simple challenges as you leave:

Express thanks every day. A spirit of thanks leads to a good life.

Learn something new every day. Imagine how interesting you will be when you are 80 years old and have learned something new every day.

Respect differences every day. Our Creator made people and cultures and languages and viewpoints and geography different for a reason.

Remember Manchester University. This University welcomed you. Faculty and staff supported you. Now you are a graduate. Be generous with your time and your gifts to keep our doors open to others.

Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible. (Dali Lama)
