Conan O’Brien on Cynicism

This is a quote I got from what Conan O’Brien said in his Last Show Farewell/Goodbye Speech on his last day hosting NBC’s Tonight Show (with my own emphasis):
"…And all I ask is one thing, and this is, I’m asking this particularly of young people that watch: Please do not be cynical.  I hate cynicism.  For the record it’s my least favorite quality.  It doesn’t lead anywhere.  Nobody in life gets exactly what they thought they were going to get.  But if you work really hard and you’re kind, amazing things will happen.  I’m telling you, amazing things will happen.  I’m telling you, it’s just true!"
