  3. I can see why you like it! I think that of all she said being true to yourself is the one thing that people should remember and do. xx

  4. I think so too, Flighty. To be true to yourself is great advice.

    This is the crux of her speech:

    "For me, the most important thing in your life is to live your life with integrity, and not to give into peer pressure. to try to be something that you're not. To live your life as an honest and compassionate person. to contribute in some way."

  5. To thine own self be true, then thou can'st be false to any man. Excellent advice.

    Ellen is simply wonderful.
