Some Inspirational Quotes and Words of Wisdom for Graduates

These work wonderfully in a graduation card, just remember to give credit to the person whose words they are!

“The best preparation for tomorrow is doing your best today.
 H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.
Lao Tzu

Put your heart, mind, and soul into even your smallest acts. This is the secret of success.
Swami Sivananda

Believe you can and you're halfway there.
Theodore Roosevelt

"Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.
Winston Churchill

"Why fit in when you were born to stand out?"

Dr Seuss

"You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself in any direction you choose. You're on your own, and you know what you know. And you are the guy who'll decide where to go."
Dr. Seuss

"It is not in the stars to hold our destiny but in ourselves."
William Shakespeare

"Be yourself, everyone else is taken!"

Oscar Wilde

"If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward."
Martin Luther King Jr.

"Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow."
Albert Einstein

"Never be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the ark; professionals built the Titanic."

"Intelligence without ambition is a bird without wings."
Salvador Dali

A lot of the quotes featured have been used numerous times by some of our customers on their graduation cards, with many choosing to place a quote or verse of the left hand page and then write their own personal message to the graduate on the right hand page.

Making it even more personal for the Graduate

To make it even more personal, use a quote from an idol which inspired the graduate into their particular field of interest/degree. For example a graduate that has taken a science based degree, may appreciate a quote by Albert Einstein or a graduate who has taken an arts degree may like a quote from Salvador Dali or even Pablo Picasso.

And in my personal opinion Dr Seuss is for everyone!

If you have any quote suggestion for the above list or one of your own that is relevant then please let us know and we may add it to the list.
