Sandra Bullock recently surprised the graduating high school class at Warren Easton Charter High School in New Orleans on Monday to relay an assortment of life lessons in a commencement speech. The Oscar winner’s speech was short, but full of inspiration.

Our favorite part (of course) was the bit about failure:

“For some reason, people want to see you fail. And that’s their problem, not your problem. I only remember the moments where I tried beyond what I thought I could do, and I do not remember the failures because I didn’t. Nothing is a failure, it’s just not supposed to work out that way, because something better is supposed to come along.”

Find out why it’s so important to play music before leaving the house (and watch the rest of the speech) here:

    checkbox and from now on every time a comment is added
    I get four emails with the same comment. Perhaps there
    is a means you can remove me from that service? Cheers!
