“As you go, we who will remain here wish you joy to overbalance grief.
We wish you faith to help you define the chaos around you.
We wish you strength to carry your success with modesty and your failure with grace.
We wish you good humor and a ready smile.
We wish you understanding and compassion, for life without understanding is shallow and life without compassion is empty.
We wish you breadth of mind and heart and spirit in a world that will sometimes seem small and mean…”
- Harvey Knowles, Phillips Exeter Academy graduation speech, 1977
We Wish You…
This is the speech that was given the day of my high school graduation, and I am struck that Knowles’ advice for life is very much advice that I would provide couples as they traverse their relationships.
There is much to reflect upon in his words, and I thought I would simply put them out there and suggest you spend a few moments thinking about how they might apply to you.
