Congratulations! Today is your day.
You’re off to Great Places! You’re off and away!
You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes.
You can steer yourself in any direction you choose.
You’re on your own.
And you know what you know.
You are the guy who’ll decide where to go.
"Oh, the Places You'll Go
Graduation is only a concept. In real life every day you graduate. Graduation is a process that goes on until the last day of your life.
If you can grasp that, you'll make a difference.
The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.
Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.
Do not follow where the path may lead. Go, instead, where there is no path and leave a trail.
-Ralph Waldo Emerson-
If opportunity doesn't knock, build a door.
Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.
You have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition. You can't get there by bus, only by hard work and risk and by not quite knowing what you're doing, but what you'll discover will be wonderful. What you'll discover will be yourself.
