Graduation Quotes
1. Wherever you go, go with all your heart.

2. When you leave here, don't forget why you came.

3. The future lies before you like a field of driven snow, be careful how you tread it, for every step will show.

4. Your schooling may be over, but remember that your education still continues.

5. What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.

6. Do not follow where the path may lead. Go, instead, where there is no path and leave a trail.

Graduation is the action of receiving or conferring an academic degree or the ceremony that is sometimes associated, where students become Graduates. Before the graduation, candidates are referred to as Graduands. The date of graduation is often called degree day. The graduation itself is also called commencement, convocation or invocation. At the University of Cambridge, the occasion on which most graduands receive their BA degree is known as general admission. In the United States and Canada, it is also used to refer to the advancement from a primary or secondary school level.

Graduation Poems
On Wings of Knowledge
There you are in your cap and tassel
Ready to make the world your castle.
It seems just yesterday you were a kid,
Watching everything I/we did.
Now we're watching you graduate--
The grown young man/woman we helped create!
On wings of knowledge you will fly;
Following your vision and rising high.
We couldn't be prouder, (NAME), of you;
We wish you success in all you do.
Remember one thing we want you to know:
Our love is with you wherever you go.
By Joanna Fuchs
If You Believe
Your diploma means a future without boundaries,
A world that's full of energy and fun.
So as you reach for all life has to offer,
Remember that you're second to no one.
Pursue your goals, yet keep your loved ones close,
As you utilize your talent and ambition.
Let your friends and family give you their support,
And you'll master every challenging transition.
And always, (NAME), know you can achieve
The things you really want, if you believe.
By Joanna Fuchs
Goodbye Dear Friend And Graduate
Goodbye, dear friend and graduate!
Our golden time is over now,
Our time of nothing more than time,
Days of simply being friends.
But I will always treasure how
Your love for me slipped into mine,
Embracing me where courage ends.
Graduation is a time
For feeling very proud,
For thinking lots of lovely thoughts
And saying them out loudĄ­
By Claudio Monteverdi
Awesome Achievement
Your college graduation
Fills us with love and pride.
We always knew that you could do
Whatever you really tried.
It's a long and challenging journey
To get a college degree,
But you wouldn't quit it, you just went and did it,
And we're beaming affectionately.
Your achievement is awesome, (NAME);
You've worked hard and you've passed the test.
We love you so, and we want you to know,
We think you're the very best!
