Every year graduating senior are expected to write something for their yearbook. Funny quotes do are not just unique and amusing, but also thought provoking! Besides, you need something to look back and laugh at!
High school graduation – literally the ending of an era that makes way for another beginning. A beginning where there will be no one to watch every step that you take, no one to guide you through every choice you make. A beginning where you are handed over the steering wheel of your life and left to consciously and responsibly veer it around from there on. You are treated as a grown-up from then on and that is exactly what makes graduation such a special occasion.
Part of you will be happy and excited in anticipation of what the future holds for you in the real and pragmatic world, while the other part will be melancholic to leave the cushioned world of teachers and friends behind. And one of the few tangible links between these two lives that you will be left with forever is the graduation yearbook. The graduation yearbook goes on to become a relic from the past that you can leaf through years later just to relive those golden days, no matter how momentarily. The words and pictures in it keep a small part of that young you alive in your grown-up self for the longest time. So, choosing your words wisely is definitely of essence here as it gets etched in time.

Finally, I leave you with my favorite quote by Hilary Winston:
We could love and not be suckers. We could dream and not be losers. It was such a beautiful time. Everything was possible because we didn’t know anything yet.
