graduation quotes from 2023

It’s that time of year to celebrate those who are graduating from educational institutions, and one of the traditional ways to honor those students is to inspire them with wisdom and wit. Here are some of the most inspirational quotes of 2023.

“All those adults that you used to think were in charge and knew what they were doing? It turns out they don’t have all the answers. A lot of them aren’t even asking the right questions. So, if the world’s going to get better, it’s going to be up to you.
-Barack Obama

“The future is always uncertain, but we who celebrate what you have done, who celebrate all of vour achievements, we are certain of one thing on this day: You will not let us down.”
-Tom Hanks

“The bad news is time flies. The good news is you’re the pilot.”
-Michael Altschuler

“Follow your passion. It will lead you to your purpose.”
-Oprah Winfrey

“When you have a dream, you’ve got to grab it and
never let go.”
-Carol Burnett

“I learned many great lessons from my father, not the least of which was that you can fail at what you don’t want, so you might as well take a chance on doing what you love.”
-Jim Carrey

“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

    I have to say I liked this quote the best…..””The bad news is time flies. The good news is you’re the pilot.”
    -Michael Altschuler”. It’s one that could apply to all of us and it’s a great ‘reminder’. I don’t want to diminish the others as they are all good ones. We were so proud of our granddaughter in her upcoming ‘graduation’ from elementary school winning the ‘Hope of America’ award….she was 1 of 8 receiving from the Kiwanis Club of Pacific Beach, CA.
