|Assunto:||Bill Gates' graduation Speech at Harvard|
He says he did the best of everyone who failed..uh..
second richest man in the world). Not that being a dropout is a crime; not at all.
(his father was a lawyer of big corporations and his mother was of directory boards
of several banks). Thus, he attended the best private schools of Seattle (where he was born); then he entered in the Harvard University for a economy major, from wich he quit to devote entirely to Microsoft.
Hey, wait a second; and what about Paul Allen, is he the richest man? the second? or what? so even for it standard we can´t measure the success, hence Bill H.Gates is warning "Man, study, do what I say, but don´t do what I did".
Isn´t everyone that is a dropout and have such a luck, uh? So, we don´t generalize (take his life history as a example), life is a complicated road so measuring success only by money is kinda telling only half-story.
Don´t we do like Louis Pasciuto (in his heydays) that named your yacht CREAM after the Wu-Tang clap rap song "Cash Rules Everything Around Me.
As an aside, Louis Pasciuto now serves times in a federal prison in USA. (see the real story in Born to Steal by Gary Weiss).
