Oprah to grads: Money isn't all

June 17, 2008|From the Associated Press

Oprah Winfrey was greeted by cheers and high-fives as she prepared to address Stanford University's Commencement on Sunday.

"I really wanted to give you cars," Winfrey, the media mogul who five times has been ranked by Forbes as the world's most powerful celebrity, told the whooping crowd.

Winfrey told the graduates it is important to persevere through bad situations and learn from them. She also instructed graduates that while making money is nice, using it to help others is what makes it worthwhile.

"I like money," said Winfrey. "It's good for buying things. What you want is money with meaning. Meaning is what brings real richness to your life."
