Graduation Quotes For My Son



Don't just get involved, fight for a seat at the table. Better yet, fight for a seat at the head of the table



Sometimes you find out what you are supposed to be doing, by doing the things you are not supposed to be doing!



I encourage you to live with life. Be courageous, adventurous. Give us a tomorrow, more than we deserve.



You can never be the best. The only thing you can be the best at is developing yourself.



You might never fail on the scale I did. But some failure in life is inevitable. It is impossible to live without failing at something unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all



Don't choose anything that will jeopardize your soul. Prioritize who you are, who you want to be, and don't spend time with anything that antagonizes your character.



You discovered a talent, developed an ambition, and recognized your passion. When you feel that, you can't fight it — you just go with it



I want you all to stay true to the most real, most sincere, most authentic parts of yourselves. I want you to ask those basic questions: Who do you want to be? What inspires you? How do you want to give back? And then I want you to take a deep breath and trust yourselves to chart your own course and make your mark on the world."



Congratulations on your well-deserved success! Your commencement ceremony may not look the way you envisioned, but you should be proud of all your accomplishments. Best wishes on all your future endeavors.



You can't do it alone...be open to collaboration. Find a group of people who challenge and inspire you. Spend a lot of time with them and it will change your life
