don’t be cynical.

“To all the people watching, I can never thank you enough for your kindness to me and I’ll think about it for the rest of my life. All I ask of you is one thing: please don’t be cynical. I hate cynicism — it’s my least favorite quality and 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 believe that.
thank you for the memories thus far, conan. i’ve loved your take on life for as long as i could remember, and, with those last beautiful words on “the tonight show”, impossibly more so now. you are an unbelievable human being, and i look forward to more kindness, less cynicism in this world through your infectious spirit.
by example, you remind me to be gracious, to be kind and always grateful. to indulge in silliness often and, at the core of it all, to simply have fun.
“…and that’s what we’re going to do.”:)
