12 Best Graduation Quotes

Posted on Posted in Motivation

I love graduations and the inspirational that come with the speeches. It’s always refreshing to see students you have worked with through many seasons of joy and pain walk the stage to receive their diplomas. The pure joy and sense of fulfillment they exude simply makes it all worth it. Personally, it erases my doubts about choosing to be an educator and compensates for the countless sacrifices I have to make in my career. Having said that, I am an even bigger fan of the many profound graduation quotes that are woven in the tapestry of graduation speeches. If students would imbibe some of these graduation quotes or wisdom nuggets like I like to call them, their life’s journey would be more fulfilling. I know this because I have held on to a few such graduation quotes from my own graduation. They echo on the corridors of my mind when I need them the most.

I have compiled a few of these wisdom nuggets from articles, videos and my own graduation to assemble this list of 12 inspirational graduations quotes. I hope they inspire you the way they have inspired me through the years.
