  1. Barbara Bush – Wellesley College Commencement
    This is my very favorite speech of the 20th century.
    The third choice she presented to the graduates was the human connections,
    “At the end of your life, you will never regret not having passed one more test, not winning one more verdict or not closing one more deal. You will regret time not spent with a husband, a child, a friend or a parent.”
