Dying Professor’s Last Lecture Video | Randy Pausch’s Life Lessons


Carnegie Mellon professor Randy Pausch has pancreatic cancer and doesn’t expect to live much longer.

This is the video of his famous last lecture given talking about his life lessons learned.

I first saw Pausch on Oprah where he gave a changed slightly version of his last lecture. I listened to what he had to say and was very excited to see the lecture was on YouTube.

    Just a few minutes ago I read of Professor Pausch’s death.
    I now grieve for a man I did not even know. I, like many of you was privileged to see his appearance on the Oprah Winfrey show and again, like most of you walked away inspired and incredibly moved by Prof. Pausch’s beautiful prospective on his life journey which took a detour that lead to death.

    I agree with the publisher of this post in that, somehow, knowledge of someone’s impending death produces a strange twist in the human psychic. It’s like we see the world through different lens. Prof. Pausch was a remarkable man, yet he claimed that he was not uniquely ‘unique’.

    I believe that he was. Prof. Pausch lived and shared his dreams, his passions, his hopes and even his family unpretentiously. Sadly, the world came to know him because of his terminal illness. Yet, in spite of knowing that he faced imminent death, we came to love and respect and admire, quite considerably, a man who was unique enough to share his journey in his last lecture.
