Graduation is a very important time in one's life. No matter if one is graduating from high school or college, this is a major milestone being reached. If there is a graduate in your life, you may be trying to come up with the perfect thing to give to that person as they pass this life event. One thing you may want to consider is something that will stay with them for some time to come. We're talking about graduation quotes.
A graduation quote is a great way to put words of advice or encouragement in the hands of a graduate as they leave their learning institution and head out into the world. While this may not seem like much, life is filled with many trials and tribulations. Sometimes, during those trials, a special inspirational graduation quote will come back into the mind of the graduate and help them remember who they are, where they are going, and aid them in looking beyond the current obstacles. Other quotes can help a grad remember that their path in life is just beginning with their diploma and that there is much more to accomplish in life.
Here's a look at some great graduation quotes for those beginning a new trek into the world:
"The man who graduates today and stops learning tomorrow is uneducated the day after." - Newton D. Baker
"You are educated. Your certification is in your degree. You may think of it as the ticket to the good life. Let me ask you to think of an alternative. Think of it as your ticket to change the world" - Tom Brokaw
"Do not go where the path may lead; go instead where there is no path and leave a trail" - Ralph Waldo Emerson
"Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined." - Henry David Thoreau
"Develop a passion for learning. If you do, you will never cease to grow." - Anthony J D'Angelo
Perhaps one of these quotes is perfect for the graduate in your life. Maybe you want to look at others. There is a seemingly endless supply of quotes out there that can be the perfect one for the graduate you know, so enjoy reading them and selecting the right words. Once you have found a quote, what are you going to do with it? Well, you want a way to make sure that when your graduate needs the reminder those graduation quotes are there waiting. How you can go about this is going to depend on the graduate in your life.
Here are a few options:
T-Shirt, Coffee Mug, etc
For those graduates who have opinions and have no problem letting the world know, you may want to get that quote on something they can show off. A t-shirt, coffee mug or bumper sticker are good examples of these options. In order to remind the graduate of the message, items like the coffee cup are best as they keep putting a reminder of those words in front of the grad as they have their morning drink.
Wall Hanging or Desk Frame
Is your grad the type that likes to put up pictures, posters and other pieces of art on their walls or desk? Well, a quote can, in fact, be a piece of art. The quote written in a beautiful font and framed nicely makes a wonderful and attractive gift that is also an inspirational reminder of that important graduation quote.
For the more subdued grad, you may want to go small, very small. You can make a small, pocket-sized version of the quote and even have it laminated. That way your grad can carry it and keep it on them. It will always be there to look at when they need it.
