–Graduation

We all used to try so hard to fit in. We wanted to look exactly alike, do all the same things, practically be the same people. And when we weren’t looking, that changed.
Now and Then

I laughed, I cried, but mostly I laughed.

Well I guess this is growing up.

The friends who grew up with you deserve a special respect. The ones who stuck by you shoulder to shoulder, in a time where nothing was certain, all life lay ahead, and every road led home.
The Wonder Years

Sure, you’re supposed to have total recall of who won the Battle of Hastings and what motivated Hamlet. And probably you should be able to label all five Great Lakes. Perhaps you can…perhaps it’s easier to remember that first kiss. Or the time you and your friends couldn’t stop laughing in math class. Or your locker combination or cafeteria mystery meat or the scintillating scent in the air when you-know-who glided past your desk. Or maybe it’s easier to remember the thrill of passing the final or the fun of the last homecoming game or hugging your best friends in the world goodbye and knowing you’d be in touch forever. But still, wondering just a little: will we always remember?

As I look back on all that’s happened–growing up, growing together, changing you, changing me…there were times when we dreamed together, when we laughed and cried together. As I look back on those days, I realize how much I truly miss you and how much I truly love you. The past may be gone forever…and whatever the future holds, our todays make the memories of tomorrow. So, my lifetime friend, it is with all my heart that I send you my love, hoping that you’ll always carry my smile with you, for all we have meant to each other and for whatever the future may hold.
C.L. Purdy

You only have a once in a lifetime buddy, once in a lifetime.
The Little Rascals

Let’s face it, we’ve changed … we’ve all changed. Somewhere between summer ending and school starting, we’ve all gone our own directions. Hearts were broken, friendships diminished, new loves started and new people came into our lives. We no longer spend all our time together in our circle of friends, we no longer talk for hours about nothing at all. We’ve changed … some for the better and some for the worse. Some of us are finding love while others are trying to let go. Even though we’ve changed, we all know that even though were all finding our own place in the world, that when we find out love, when we let go of a love, when the tears fall or the happy smile spreads across our face … we’ll come to each other because no matter where this crazy world takes us and no matter what happens, nothing will ever change so much that we’re not all best friends forever.
Allison Mosher

Goodbye yesterday, now it’s over and done. Still I hope somewhere deep in your heart, yesterday will live on.
Journey

There’s a big world out there: bigger than prom, bigger than high school … and it won’t matter if you were the prom queen or the quarterback of the football team, or the biggest nerd. Find out who you are and try not to be afraid of it.
Never Been Kissed

All these places had their moments, with lovers and friends I still can recall…in my life I’ve loved them all.
The Beatles

The future is not some place we are going, but one we create. The paths are not found, but made. And the activity of making them changes both the maker and the destination.
John Schaar

Looking back on all these years, all the smiles all the tears, I never want those memories to fade.
MxPx

How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard.
Annie

The truth is, in time that’s all we’ll be to each other anyway, a population of memories, some wonderful and endearing, some less so. But taken together, these memories help make us who we are and who we will be.

Never shall I forget the time I have spent with you. Please continue to be my friend, as you will always find me yours.
Ludwig Van Beethoven

The fireworks begin today. Each diploma is a lighted match. Each one of you is a fuse.
Edward Koch

[I]t is clear the future holds great opportunities. It also holds pitfalls. The trick will be to avoid the pitfalls, seize the opportunities, and get back home by six o’clock.
Woody Allen

Sometimes it feels like it was yesterday. We graduated high school, saying goodbye. That feeling that you get at seventeen or eighteen that nobody in the history of the world has ever been this close, has ever loved as fiercely or laughed as hard or cared as much. Sometimes it feels like it was yesterday and sometimes it feels like someone else’s memory.
One Tree Hill

Well duh dude, this place sucks. But I just worry that one day we’re gonna look back at high school and wish we’d done something different.
Charlie Bartlett

People will frighten you about a graduation…. They use words you don’t hear often: “And we wish you Godspeed.” It is a warning, Godspeed. It means you are no longer welcome here at these prices.
Bill Cosby

Wherever you go, go with all your heart.
Confucius

You have brains in your head.
You have feet in your shoes.
You can steer yourself in any direction you choose.
You’re on your own.
And you know what you know.
You are the guy who’ll decide where to go.
Dr. Seuss
