On Earnestness Part 2

"All I ask is one thing, and this is-- I’m asking this particularly of young people that watch.

Please do not be cynical. I hate cynicism; for the record, it's my least favorite quality. It doesn't lead anywhere.

Nobody in life gets exactly what they thought they were going to get. But if you work really hard, and you're kind, amazing things will happen.

I’m telling you.  Amazing things will happen.  I’m telling you.  It’s just true."

-Conan O'Brian, during his final show

Refreshingly earnest real talk on network TV, of all places.  I like the all-encompassing promise of "amazing" things happening.  I think it's true that, at some time, and in some form, you will get back what you put in.
