Jessica Lange gave the commencement address at Sarah Lawrence College.
Her key thoughts shared with graduates:
"We are all citizens of a troubled world. ... That legacy is being passed directly down to you. ... the celebration of mediocrity and false celebrity. ... I encourage you not to buy into it. . . .
I would encourage you with all my heart to be present.
Life is a collection of moments.
Don't constrain yourself with expectations of success.
Success will be a by-product of the life you lead.
... And all success is individual."
