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!
