ELLEN DEGENERES - You're gonna be okay, dum-dum-da-duh, just dance!

A while ago, i was looking ideas for a speech and i found this video. I have to say that i've always have found Ellen DeGeneres as an amazing and extraordinary stand-up comedian, but i really didn't knew what she had been through, honestly i didn't care... but now i know that was wrong, because, as funny as she is, there's some dark past behind her and i really have respect for her since i saw this video. It's truly inspiring, and it also messed with my head (haha), since.. you may don't care but i'm actually in collegue and i'm still not sure about it... but anyways, that story may belong to another post... So, the video lasts almost 10 minutes, but believe me... you will be glad to have watched it.

If either you don't have time to watch the video or just simply want to remember some highlights of the video, here are some quotes from her video...

"I didn't went to collegue at all, and i'm not saying you wasted your time or money... although, look at me i'm a huge celebrity...".

"The most important thing is to be true to yourself..." .

"My idea of success is diferent... and yours will change".

"Don't try to be something that your not...".

"Be true to  yourself, and everything will come...".

"Instead of showing your boobs, show them your brain...".

"Don't follow anybody's path, unless you're lost in the woods...".

"So, if you don't remember anything of what i've just said... just remember... You're gonna be okay, dum-dum-da-duh, just dance!"

By the way, good Gaga quote!
