Indy's Graduation

My sister graduated high school today and I'm super proud of her. It's funny looking back and remembering all of her friends as second graders because that's when I met most of them when we changed schools. It's been so fun watching them all grow up. My sister's going to be a college student now, joining me in Marshall in the fall. Way to go Class of 2011. I'm also in the mood to include some graduation quotes in here. Just for the fun of it. And because this first one is one my sister found when she was looking up quotes for the graduation speech she had to write for her English class.
"A graduation ceremony is an event where the commencement speaker tells thousands of students dressed in identical caps and gowns that "individuality" is the key to success."  ~Robert Purvis
"Wherever you go, no matter what the weather, always bring your own sunshine." ~Anthony J. D'Angelo

"Your families are extremely proud of you. You can't imagine the sense of relief they are experiencing. This would be a most opportune time to ask for money."  ~Gary Bolding

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."  ~Marianne Williamson
"I hope your dreams take you to the corners of your smiles, to the highest of your hopes, to the windows of your opportunities, and to the most special places your heart has ever known."  ~Author Unknown
"The difference between school and life? In school, you're taught a lesson and then given a test. In life, you're given a test that teaches you a lesson." ~Tom Bodett
"Be yourself, everyone else is already taken." ~Oscar Wilde
"Sing like no one's listening, love like you've never been hurt, dance like nobody's watching, and live like its heaven on earth." ~Mark Twain
"Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire." ~William Butler Yeats
"Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, 'I will try again tomorrow.'" ~Mary Anne Radmacher
"Don't worry about what anybody else is going to do… The best way to predict the future is to invent it. Really smart people with reasonable funding can do just about anything that doesn't violate too many of Newton's Laws!" ~Alan Kay
"It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are." ~e.e. cummings
