The extra cookie

The wonderful writer Michael Lewis gave the commencement speech at Princeton this year.

All of you have been faced with the extra cookie. All of you will be faced with many more of them. In time you will find it easy to assume that you deserve the extra cookie. For all I know, you may. But you'll be happier, and the world will be better off, if you at least pretend that you don't.

Well put.
