Conan O'Brien joked a lot on his way out, but in the end he took the highest of high roads, delivering one of the most positive, inspiring speeches we've ever heard.
Ch-ch-check out the video (above) to see the funny man get serious for a moment to say:

Maybe the best advice we ever heard. And we're still trying our best!
