Graduation wishes: what to write in a graduation card

well wishes for highschool graduates

Graduation is a big occasion that calls for big sentiments. Whether you’re writing a commencement address or just sending graduation wishes, you’re searching for words that are profound, poetic, inspirational, funny, and preferably, brief. But hey, no pressure.

This is when it might be a good time to lean on the eloquence of others. Fortunately, many people have offered their pearls of wisdom to high school and college graduates over the years. In fact, you could probably fill a hefty book with sage words of advice for graduating students.

Consider this the Cliffs Notes version. To save you from endless research, we’ve put together a list of the best graduation quotes of all time. Note that while many of these sayings are well-known, we’ve taken the road less traveled and avoided some of the more obvious choices.

Inspirational | Short | Funny | For Daughter | For Son | Toasts

Inspirational

It’s called “commencement” because graduates are beginning something new. Here are some inspirational graduation quotes to motivate them toward greatness.

  • “You may encounter many defeats, but you must not be defeated. In fact, it may be necessary to encounter the defeats, so you can know who you are, what you can rise from, how you can still come out of it.”
  • “Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose.”
  • “To accomplish great things we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe.”
  • “So many of our dreams at first seem impossible, then they seem improbable, and then, when we summon the will, they soon become inevitable.”
  • “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.”
  • “Happiness is like a butterfly which, when pursued, is always beyond our grasp, but, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you.”
  • “What lies behind us, and what lies before us are small matters compared to what lies within us.”
    attributed to Ralph Waldo Emerson
  • “To be really great in little things, to be truly noble and heroic in the insipid details of everyday life, is a virtue so rare as to be worthy of canonization.”
  • “Success is the ability to go from failure to failure without losing your enthusiasm.”
  • “The old rules are crumbling and nobody knows what the new rules are. So make up your own rules.”
  • “If you are successful, it is because somewhere, sometime, someone gave you a life or an idea that started you in the right direction. Remember also that you are indebted to life until you help some less fortunate person, just as you were helped.”
  • “You cannot authentically live anyone’s life but your own. That is the deal life offers us.”
  • “This is your time and it feels normal to you, but really, there is no normal. There’s only change and resistance to it and then more change.”
  • “Success is relative. It is what we make of the mess we have made of things.”
  • “Don’t judge each day by the harvest you reap but by the seeds that you plant.”
  • “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”

Short

Hey, there’s only so much space on a graduation card. Here are some graduation messages that say a lot in a few words.

  • “Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can.”

  • “Success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day in and day out.”
  • “There is no traffic jam along the extra mile.”
  • “Go forth and set the world on fire.”

Funny

Graduation is a solemn and ceremonious rite of passage, which makes it a perfect target for humor. Here are some funny graduation quotes to keep things loose.

  • “You have the power. You are your own professor now. Which I know is a little creepy because that means you’re showering with your professor. But you have tenure. They can’t fire you.”
  • “Even if you are on the right track, you’ll get run over if you just sit there.”
  • “If you’re still playing beer pong five years from now, you may be on the wrong track.”
  • “You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself in any direction you choose.”
  • “Commencement speeches were invented largely in the belief that outgoing college students should never be released into the world until they have been properly sedated.”
  • “Life has no remote… get up and change it yourself!”
  • “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.”
  • “Never follow anyone else’s path, unless you’re in the woods and you’re lost and you see a path. Then by all means follow that path.”
  • “To those of you who received honours, awards and distinctions, I say well done. And to the C students, I say you, too, can be president of the United States.”
  • “I have never let my schooling interfere with my education.”

  • “Don’t just get involved. Fight for your seat at the table. Better yet, fight for a seat at the head of the table.”
  • “I am a woman with thoughts and questions and shit to say. I say if I’m beautiful. I say if I’m strong. You will not determine my story – I will.”
  • “She turned her can’ts into cans and her dreams into plans.”

For Son

Here are some quotes to share with a graduating son.

  • “Try not to become a man of success. Rather become a man of value.”
  • “A man may conquer a million men in battle but one who conquers himself is, indeed, the greatest of conquerors.”
  • “Be careful to leave your sons well instructed rather than rich, for the hopes of the instructed are better than the wealth of the ignorant.”

Graduation Toasts

Let us not forget that graduation is a time of celebration. Raise your glass to these graduation toasts.

  • “May you live long enough to see your hair grayed, your grandchildren grown, and your student loans paid off!”
  • “Here’s to the parents who adored us
    The teachers who bored us
    The assignments that wore on us
    And the friendships that restored us!”
  • “Here’s to the graduate. She’s leaving classes, but staying classy.”
  • “Here’s a toast to the graduate, because toast is about all he can afford to eat with the cost of tuition these days.”

85 Best Graduation Messages and Wishes

well wishes for highschool graduates

Graduation Day is a special event where a student finally graduates or receives an academic degree. In America, graduation is often described as a “rite of passage”. It can also be called as a Move-Up, Step-Up, Recognition, or Promotion Day. During this time, parents and students feel a certain sense of pride once they receive the public confirmation of their many years of hard work and commitment towards their studies.

For the students, it is an amazing feeling to survive all the sleepless nights, difficult exams and school activities after many years. For the parents, on the other hand, the paying of tuition fees, projects, and programs has finally come to an end and they can finally see their child create their own career and become an adult. It speaks a lot about achievement, hard work, and dedication.

As this memorable event unfolds, you start to think about your future and you plan on what your next steps should be. Some decide to get on a vacation to give themselves a chance to relax after their long years of stress in school. Others hunt jobs right away determined to earn their own salary and establish a career. No matter what your plans are after graduation, there is one thing that will not change; life goes on. You may no longer have to read books or listen to a professor inside a room full of other students anymore, but you will be facing real-world problems and learning new life lessons. You will be able to use what you learned in school, but you will find out that courage and perseverance are what you will mostly need to face all of life’s challenges.

We would like to congratulate you on your graduation by giving these motivational graduation quotes. We hope you do your best out there and we wish you luck on your next adventure!
