A Graduation Keepsake
A time to thank those who helped you make it through those tough years.
Your parents, your teachers, your siblings, maybe a coach...but mostly your friends...
and mix them well together
With plenty of good nature
that laughs in cloudy weather;
Add earnestness of purpose
in everything you plan
And much determination
and we think you will confess
You've never found a better rule
for making a success. Anonymous
The pure, the bright, the beautiful
That stirs our hearts in youth,
The impulses to wordless prayer,
The streams of love and truth,
The longing after something lost,
The spirit's yearning cry,
The striving after better hopes--
These things can never die. Charles Dickens
Of freshman hazing,
With bonfires blazing...
Saved from dances
Blend with those
Of light romances...
Memories of study hall
And serious talks
Upon the mall...
Are ribbon and bow
Binding school-time years. Mary R. Hurley
without improving the individual.
Towards this end,
each of us must work toward his
own highest development,
accepting...his share of responsibility
in the general life of humanity. Marie Curie
is not talent, it is the best
possible substitute for it. James A Garfield
but practice is the key to it. Thomas Fuller
know, and that we do not know what we do notknow is true knowledge. Henry David Thoreau
you enter by yourself. Chinese Proverb
what mark to aim at, how to use the bow-
Then draw it to the head, and let it go! Henry van Dyke
Here you stand upon life's threshold, young
And earnest, with bright memories in your eyes,
One with your classmates when the songs are sung,
Filled with youthfull innocence, yet so wise.
The ivied halls, the friendships, but you know
Beyond the campus gate, not far away,
A new world beckons, and you must go. Esther York Burkholder
Add to the Lamp of Knowledge
The fuel of human understanding,
And common sense,
And its light will serve you well
Throught the joys and challenges
of life. Barbara Burrow
When June returns with blossoms in her hair,
When skies are blue, and sun is warm and kind,
Your thoughts in restless, vagrant mood will fare
To those you loved and lost and kept in mind.
The shadow that across the campus lies
May be our class, slow marching, line by line,
Glad, friendly ghosts with fond, remembering eyes.
The tribute of a sigh on us bestow;
And may our songs still echo in your heart,
When other classes rise like ours and go.
By far-off seas, beneath a distant star,
And send our thoughts across the world to you,
Whenever June returns, where'er we are. Author Unknown
and to secure an opportunity to do it
is the key to happiness. John Dewey
never goes back to its origninal dimensions. Oliver Wendell Holmes
With yoru heart,
hand and mind
You hold the power to mold
Each golden moment,
Each shining hour
Into new designs,
Infinite possibilities. Tina Hacker
