Leave it to Stephen Colbert to bring some lighthearted comedy and all the laughter in a somewhat dark speech.

LOLz!

But all jokes aside, the comedian took the honor of giving the Wake Forest University commencement speech on Monday in North Carolina.

The former Colbert Report host had some pretty wise words to pass onto the class of 2015!

He said at one point in his speech:

"I just spent many years learning to do one thing really well. I got so comfortable with that place, that role, those responsibilities, that it came to define how I saw myself; but now part of my life is over. It's time to say goodbye to the person we've become … and to make some crucial decisions in becoming who we're going to be. For me, I'll have to figure out how to do an hour-long show every night. And you at some point will have to sleep. I am told the Adderall wears off eventually…

I hope you find the courage to decide for yourself what is right and what is wrong, and then please, expect as much of the world around you. Try to make the world good according to your standards."

Beautiful.
