New graduates across the country heard lots of words of wisdom this weekend. Some speeches were encouraging.
"People are going to tell you to plan, to focus. They will tell you that if you want to succeed, you have to stubbornly stay on your path, no matter what. They will be right. They will also be wrong ... Don't be so focused in your plans that you are unwilling to consider the unexpected," Sen. Elizabeth Warren told graduates at Bridgewater State University.
"You need support. You need people who want you to win. You need people who are in your corner. You need people who care about you, who want your success, who are not jealous of your success, who have no envy about you moving forward," Oprah Winfrey said at Johnson C. Smith University.
