"As the great philosopher Benjamin Affleck once said, 'Judge me by how good my good ideas are, not how bad my bad ideas are,'" Damon said.

"You've got to suit up in your armor. You've got to get ready to sound like a total fool. Not having an answer isn't embarrassing — it's an opportunity," Damon said.

Naturally, Damon, who involves himself in various political causes, made jokes about the presidential election, but got serious about urging graduates to figure out what good they want to do in the world.
"What is the problem you will try to solve? Whatever your answer, it is not going to be easy," Damon said.

"Sometimes your work will hit a dead end. Sometimes your work will be measured in half steps. Sometimes your work will make you wear a white sequined military uniform and make love to Michael Douglas," joked Damon, referring to his role in the Liberace biopic "Behind the Candelabra."

"All right, maybe that's just my work. But for all of you here, your work starts today," concluded Damon.
