When the time comes to celebrate commencement, emotions run high. Marking a graduation ceremony is a momentous milestone; something to be proud of. Whether the graduate in your life is finishing a postgraduate degree, college, trade school or high school; the occasion calls for a real celebration.
Choosing a graduation gift worthy of the milestone it honors is an important task. Making the gift personal, with heartfelt inscription perhaps, is a lovely way to go. Words of affirmation and praise can be written, by hand, in a card or on a piece of stationary. You can also engrave a special message on a crystal plaque or remembrance. When searching for the right words, consider graduation quotations, especially inspirational graduation quotes.
Choosing The Right Words
Are you trying to settle on the perfect motivational graduation quote? There are many wonderful options for engraving. Consider the following examples, all ideal graduation quotes from parents.
“Success is like a mountain that keeps growing ahead of you as you hike it... Err in the direction of kindness.” -George Saunders
“It is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all - in which case, you fail by default.” -J.K. Rowling
“We all go through life bristling at our external limitations, but the most difficult chains to break are inside us.” -Bradley Whitford
All of these graduation congratulation quotes will take a graduation gift from “present” to “permanent keepsake.”
Keeping the Faith
Using the word of God to celebrate graduation is more than appropriate. For those who take comfort in the fruits of the spirit, consider inscribing a keepsake with religious graduation quotes. This scripture from First Timothy would be beautiful on a crystal keepsake.
“Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity.” 1 Timothy 4:12
Make commencement a day to remember with a personalized keepsake, engraved with a carefully chosen graduation quote. It’s the perfect finishing touch on any gift.
