Monday Motivator: It’s the Season for Advice

It is the time of the year when students in their caps and gowns listen to speakers tell them how to be successful in the world. So I decided to take a look at what I consider some good advice for graduates from the famous throughout history:

  • First say to yourself what you would be, and then do what you have to do.– Epictetus, Greek Stoic philosopher
  • New beginnings are often disguised as painful endings.–Lao Tzu, Chinese philosopher
  • The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be.–Ralph Waldo Emerson, American essayist and poet
  • The price of anything is the amount of life you exchange for it.–Henry David Thoreau, American author.
  • Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself.–Leo Tolstoy, Russian author.

Congratulations to all the graduates!
