Graduation Quotes to Make You Think

With graduation just around the corner, I wanted to post some of my favorite graduation quotes. Enjoy!

1.      “Do not go where the path may lead; go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.” Ralph Waldo Emerson
2.      “The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.” Eleanor Roosevelt
3.      “Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined.” Henry David Thoreau
4.      “What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters, compared to what lies within us.” Ralph Waldo Emerson

5.      “It is in the knowledge of the genuine conditions of our lives that we must draw our strength to live and our reasons for living.” Simone De Beauvoir
6.      “Whatever you think you can do or believe you can do, begin it. Action has magic, grace, and power in it.” Julia Cameron
7.      “Since you are like no other being ever created since the beginning of time, you are incomparable.” Brenda Ueland
8.      “It may be those who do most, dream most.” Stephen Leacock
9.      “We grow by dreams. All big men are dreamers. They see things in the soft haze of a spring day, or in the read fire of a long winter’s evening. Some of us let these great dreams die, but others nourish and protect them, nurse them through bad days till they bring them to the light which comes always to those who sincerely hope that their dreams will come true.” Woodrow Wilson

·         Make a difference in the world
·         Be kind to animals, children and the elderly
