"If you cannot be wise, pretend to be someone who is wise, and then just behave like they would.”
“Break rules. Leave the world more interesting for your being here.”
“I hope you'll make mistakes. If you're making mistakes, it means you're out there doing something.”

What a gem of a book, and brilliant as well, taking a graduation speech Gaiman gave at an art school, and then making good art using the text and book format. Break up the text, and you have shining sound bites; taken as a whole, it's an inspiration especially to artists - but we all can take something from the book. The origin of the phrase "words of wisdom" is from the Bible - the "word of wisdom" is a spiritual gift. Regardless of Gaiman's religious (or non) bent, he's given us a spiritual gift here, truer words of wisdom couldn't be found.
