grad·u·a·tion [graj-oo-ey-shuhn] – noun
1. an act of graduating; the state of being graduated.
2. the ceremony of conferring degrees or diplomas, as at a college or school.
3. arrangement in degrees, levels or ranks

There is a good reason they call these ceremonies "commencement exercises."
Graduation is not the end; it's the beginning. 
~Orrin Hatch

Graduation is only a concept.  In real life every day you graduate.
Graduation is a process that goes on  until the last day of your life.
If you can grasp that, you'll make a difference.
~Arie Pencovici

Things turn out best for the people who make the best out of the way things turn out.  ~Art Linkletter

Excellence is not a skill.  It is an attitude.  ~Ralph Marston

If opportunity doesn't knock, build a door.  ~Milton Berle

There are no shortcuts to any place worth going.  ~Beverly Sills

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did.
So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor.
Catch the trade winds in your sails.  Explore.  Dream.  Discover.
~Attributed to Mark Twain, unconfirmed
