To squeeze from life its fullness, to be happy in this world in the short period of time we are given, to find meaning in life, you have to be actively giving members of your communities. Neither your life nor the world you live in just happens. You control the quality of your lives and your communities. It is only in giving to others that you can find meaning and satisfaction in what you do.”

No civil rights struggle proceeds in a straight line. There are reverses, and there have been many reverses in this civil rights struggle already. But fundamentally we are right. Everyone is entitled to equal protection, and we have as a society only succeeded in ignoring that because we have been able to characterize people—women, African Americans, people of different religions, and people of different sexual orientations—as different. They are not. We know it, they know it, and someday the United States Supreme Court will recognize it.”

“I encourage your discomfort, that you must contribute, that you must make your voice heard. That is the essence of good citizenship, that bone-deep sense of obligation that you must work to improve our democracy, and to improve it especially for those who are most marginalized and most in need.”

“As graduates of this extraordinary institution, you have enormous privilege. With that privilege comes a responsibility—to not just stand out, but to stand for something, whether you are writing a legal opinion, or editing a genome, or running for office, or literally doing stand up. Stand for something.”

Your generation is unraveling deeply entrenched laws, principles, and misguided values that have held women back for far too long and, therefore, have held us all back. Imagine the possibilities when women are not held back. The world that you will live in that will be a lot better. This is the first generation that navigates with the security and confidence to treat women as equals.”

In every generation leaders emerge because they one day awake to the realization that it’s not up to someone else to fix this problem or take up that cause—it’s up to them. So now is the time for you to lead.”
