A graduation ceremony is an event where the commencement speaker tells thousands of students dressed in identical caps and gowns that 'individuality' is the key to success.
Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind. Don't cry because it's over. Smile because it happened.
Those who matter don't mind, and those who mind don't matter.
All your dreams can come true if you have the courage to pursue them.
Commencement speeches were invented largely in the belief that outgoing college students should never be released into the world until they have been properly sedated.
Don't judge each day by the harvest you reap but by the seeds that you plant.
Make the most of yourself, for that is all there is of you.
A man who has never gone to school may steal from a freight car; but if he has a university education, he may steal the whole railroad.
Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.
If opportunity doesn't knock, build a door.
If you can imagine it, you can achieve it. If you can dream it, you can become it.
Go for it now. The future is promised to no one.
Living well is the best revenge.If opportunity doesn't knock, build a door.
If you can dream it, you can achieve it.
Don't be afraid to take a big step if one is indicated. You can't cross a chasm in two small jumps.
Always be a first-rate version of yourself.
If you feel that you have both feet planted on level ground, then the university has failed you.
Education is an admirable thing, but it is well to remember from time to time that nothing that is worth knowing can be taught.
Always be a first-rate version of yourself, instead of a second-rate version of somebody else.
If you can dream it, you can do it.
