  • “The doer alone learneth.” -Friedrich Nietzsche
  • “You don’t need to have it all figured out at once. Take it one step at a time.” –Mom
  • “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
  • “You’ll be fine.” -Mom
  • “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 Orben
  • “Drink water. You’ll feel better.”  -Mom
  • “Graduation speeches force you to reflect. They are about consciousness. Nothing is better than consciousness.” -Bruce Eric Kaplan
  • “You can do it.” -Mom
  • “We don’t stop going to school when we graduate.” – Carol Burnett
  • “When I told you that you would be fine, it was because I KNEW that you would be fine. When I told you that you could make it, it was because I KNEW that you could make it. I believe that you can do anything that you set your mind to but even more than that- I KNOW YOU CAN. And you did.” -Mom

My words might not have been as profound as Nietzsche, but my faith and belief in my child were. I am the proud mom of a college graduate.
