    Make your speech as short as possible and people will love you. Everyone hates long graduation speeches.

    What about long graduation speeches made by me?
    Well, I open my eyes and I see things. I've seen spirits moving through the walls. I've seen a vortex coming through the wall. I've seen amorphous little balls of light bouncing all around in the front yard through the window. I've seen giant bugs on the floor. I was in a hotel room in Amarillo, Texas, and all I remember is standing on the bed and seeing the whole wall in front of me filled with lights that were [makes popping sound] popping like popcorn out of the wall. Then I'll wake up and I go "Wow, I was standing on my bed and staring at this wall."

    No one cares about you in a speech so don't talk about you. Make poetic analogies that aren't surgar coated and for gods sake don't quote anyone because its just stupid. If you have a quote it should be no more than 3 or 4 words. If you really want awe the kids talk about how the shirty economy an hoe thy will over come it with their streaghth and thrive setting a new bar for the geneations to follow etc etc greatest generation blah blah blah.

    That sounds like pretty terrible speech advice

    Have fun being that loser everyone is talking shit on while they are saying a speech about how great they are and quoting shit heads like ghandi, who knows, maybe you'll be just as big of a bitch as a communications major doing the same dbag speech about yourself in college and then add in a few sentences remembering that dead kid only like 3 ppl knew and make it seem like he taught you all a valuable lesson on life. *insert studio recorded 90s aw sound*

    Dogar, there is something legitimately wrong with you if you think this. I mean disrespecting the dead is one of the lowest of lows.

    I think using a death of an otherwise unknown person to most as a device to attempt to make a speech "meaningful" is shameless, lazy and disrespectful. It's used by shitty students who can't write speeches. May be good at getting the chance to make them but being good at making them is an entirely other matter.

    Sorry if not all of us are social outcasts Dogar, you'll forgive me for not taking the advice of the person who never socialised with his classmates, only his professors

    but no really, featuring a quote prominently in a graduation speech is like the most sophomoric and laughably obvious thing you can do. "As _____ said: ..." as everyone rolls their eyes and calls you a faggot.
    "I'll go," said Chagataev. "But what will I do there? Build socialism?"
    "What else?" said the secretary.

    Exactly.

    But hey Lord, if you want to be that guy so be it. You asked for advice and if you want to be a bitch then write a bitch speech. Do post it though, I'd love to see your grand unique thoughts that you share with the masses with misplaced pride.

    Make it fun or interesting. No one wants to listen to some bullshit speech about achieving goals and being a good citizen that literally everyone has heard seventy-thousand times.
