Oprah Winfrey's Agnes Scott College Commencement Speech Is Inspiring AF

Graduation season is upon us!

Oprah shared some of her best advice with Georgia's Agnes Scott College class of 2017. She reminded graduates from the private women's school that it's important to live a life of substance and that doesn't always mean striving for financial gain. "It is a question of 'What do you stand for?' And I will say this, you're nothing if you're not the truth," the mogul told attendees. 

"The biggest reward is not financial benefits... though it's really good, you can get a lot of great shoes. Nothing wrong with great shoes. But those of you who have a lot of shoes know that having great shoes and a closet full of shoes or cars or houses or square footage, doesn't fill up your life. But living a life of substance can; Substance through your service." 

Preach, Oprah! We couldn't agree more!
