"On page 17 of The Last Lecture, Randy writes, "we cannot change the cards we are dealt, just how we play the hand." What might this say about Randy and the type of person he is? How might you apply this motto to your own life?" eNotes Editorial, 27 June 2019, -help/on-page-17-of-the-last-lecture-randy-writes-we-1866358.Accessed 9 Feb. 2023.
He gave his final lecture on September 18, 2007 titled The Last Lecture: Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams at Carnegie Mellon. The lecture went viral on YouTube and led to Pausch becoming a social media celebrity, with invitations to make several media appearances. His lecture was then adapted into a book called The Last Lecture, becoming a New York Times best-seller.
Really loving this! Beautifully designed app with well written summaries from a wide range of categories. Thanks to audiobooks for making my time productive when Im stuck in traffic. I really loved the custom made covers which makes them unique from other apps.
His Last Lecture is now fleshed out in a book of the same name (co-written with Jeff Zaslow, the WSJ reporter that brought his lecture to widespread prominence) and he recently filmed an ABC News Special with Diane Sawyer. His comments are immensely wise for a 47 year old.

Randy Pausch (1960-2008) is best known for co-writing a book called The Last Lecture. After being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in September 2006, Randy put together a lecture called The Last Lecture: Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams. He gave the lecture on September 18, 2007 and it became an instant hit on YouTube, which lead to other media appearances. Hyperion, a publishing company owned by Disney, paid Pausch $6.7 million for the rights to publish a book based on the lecture. The book went on to sell 400,000 copies in its first printing and has been translated into 46 languages. It spent more than 85 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list. To date, the book has sold more than 4.5 million copies. Pausch was a professor of computer sciences and human-computer interaction and design at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) in Pittsburgh, PA.
I just watched the Last Lecture as part of my MAed program and I was in awe of the man and how he portrayed the BEST in his life. I just returned yesterday from a week at WDW and how I wished I had known about his tribute plaque before today. I live in Virginia Beach, VA (the city next to Chesapeake) and my wife had the opportunity to meet this man as she works for the Hospice organization he was with. I will definitely be purchasing the book and will forever try to incorporate his legacy of living into my life. THANK YOU Randy for sharing with all of us the message you left for your children
Follow the general MLA rules for formatting titles: If the source is a self-contained work (e.g. a whole website or an entire book), put the title in italics; if the source is contained within a larger whole (e.g. a page on a website or a chapter of a book), put the title in quotation marks.
If a source does not have page numbers but is divided into numbered parts (e.g. chapters, sections, scenes, Bible books and verses, Articles of the Constitution, or timestamps), use these numbers to locate the relevant passage.
Some source types, such as books and journal articles, may contain footnotes (or endnotes) with additional information. The following rules apply when citing information from a note in an MLA in-text citation:
As a professor in Carnegie Mellon, every professor is asked to give such a lecture about their personal and professional life before retiring. Randy has never considered it as his last, until he had recently been diagnosed with terminal pancreatic cancer. He just has three to six months to live.
Note: Because online monographs from Natural Medicines typically do not have page numbers, paragraph numbers or section headings, this information is left out of the in-text citation. 2b1af7f3a8
