Cue the ceremonial music, put on the cap and gown, and move your tassel from the right side to left. It’s your big day – 12 years of schooling, perhaps 13 years if you went to Pre-K as well, have officially earned you that glorious piece of paper that certifies you as a high school graduate. You’re going to hear a lot of memorable things during the graduation ceremony. There’s no doubt that the principal of your school will have a thing or two to say, along with any keynote speakers who signed up to speak during the occasion. Then there is the valedictorian and any other notable student speakers who may be talking. Everyone wants to provide wisdom that will you, and your fellow classmates, will need on the next chapter of life.
Everyone has went through different experiences in life and learned life lessons that they can pass along – creating a smoother path for others to travel. While you won’t remember every single word that it uttered, when you listen to speeches or have conversations with others, it’s important to treasure a handful of quotes to live by. You’ll discover, as you move forward after graduation, that these quotes apply not only towards your new beginning after graduation but also towards the chapters that follow.
