GRADUATION SPEECH QUOTES

In this text, tweet, twerk world that you've grown up in, remember that just because you're doing a lot more, doesn't mean you're getting a lot more done.

Don't be afraid to fail big, to dream big, but remember, dreams without goals, are just dreams. And they ultimately fuel disappointment. ... I try to give myself a goal every day, sometimes it's just not to curse somebody out.

You'll never see a U-Haul behind a hearse. I don't care how much money you make, you can't take it with you. ... It's not how much you have, it's what you do with it.

While you're on your knees in the morning, say thank you in advance for what is already yours. ... True desire in the heart for anything good is God's proof to you sent beforehand that it's already yours. ... When you get it, reach back, pull someone else up.

Don't just aspire to make a living, aspire to make a difference.
