"As you go forth into the world..."

"Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart."

Those words were spoken by Steve Jobs, addressing the Stanford graduating class of 2005. Jobs is just one of the speakers selected by Education Editor Liz Dwyer of Good Education as those we all wish we had had at our commencement exercises. As the grad season begins, it's fun to look back at some of the greats. (And if you're going to a graduation this year, or graduating yourself, good luck at getting someone comparable.)

Check out who said what at Ten Commencement Speakers You Wish You'd Had.
