Above all else...

To thine own self be true.

Truer words have never been spoken. Graduates, I urge you not to fall into the traps of greed and envy that so plague our culture as you go out into the world. Corporate America has a way to pressure you, break you and change you. But remember who you are, where you came from, and that you are a unique individual capable of changing the world. You've already achieved so much, and you have your entire lives ahead of you to achieve whatever you dream. Don''t give up, don't give in, and truly follow your heart. There's no better judge of character than your self.

So Seniors, to quote Polonius from William Shakespeare's Hamlet one more time:

To thine own self be true...

Unless its for more than 6 figures. Then fuck it am I right? You can buy happiness.
