quotes of graduation - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
I never thought I'd graduate. People from where I'm from generally don't go to university. My Dad drove a taxi cab and worked for the water authority too, driving heavy plant machinery to clear agricultural drainage ditches. University was for posh people, right? People who watched TV all the time and played up the woods on motorbikes, it wasn't for us, yeah? Then one day a teacher said he thought I had what it took to get the kind of job that needs a degree. I think that's the first time I began to believe in myself and wonder what I could achieve with a bit more schooling. Now folks think of me as privileged. I guess I am. I got the education so many back in my hometown never got. But I can use it to help them. I can use it to speak up. And perhaps that's my real graduation, to have the courage to go back to my roots, become a true role model and make a difference.
The joy of graduation is sweet and mellow, a sense of growing confidence that perhaps had struggled to bloom before.

Every celebration, every graduation, is the start of a new challenge.
Once we graduate into the realm of mastery, each soul you teach believes they got there on their own. This is because the master becomes a mirror to show them what they already hold within, allowing them to develop their best and let what is undesirable wither.
Graduation is as much a celebration of the community as the individual, for we are all stronger when we are educated and use that education for the betterment of society.
