    “Have more than thou showest,
    Speak less than thou knowest,
    Lend less than thou owest,
    Ride more than thou goest,
    Learn more than thou trowest,
    Set less than thou throwest.” – King Lear

Barry Edelstein, a theater director who has staged more than half of Shakespeae’s plays, asserts that the quote above is an ideal commencement quote.  So, in honor of commencements everywhere (and in particular at the University of Missouri-St. Louis this weekend), don’t ever bet all your chips on one roll of the dice (i.e. a paraphrase of the last line of the above quote).
