Title: Chairman and CEO, Fairfax Financial Holdings (FFH) Commencement: University of Western Ontario, Ivey School of Business Date: April 4
"As you go into the business world and you’re going to be working, keep in the back of your mind that you don’t want to succeed at the expense of your family. It’s never going to be worth it. Finally, if you want to really be happy, do not forget to give back some of your time, talents, and money to help someone. As the Chinese proverb says, ‘If you want happiness for an hour, take a nap. If you want happiness for one day, go fishing. If you want happiness for a year, inherit a fortune. If you want happiness for a lifetime, help someone.’"
