Some of my Favorite Quotes for Graduation

It's graduation season, and I was honored to attend my younger brother Greg's graduation from USC last week. I was so inspired by all the good works, brilliance, determination, and giving spirit I witnessed in the graduates I met. The energy in the air was contagious, and I left feeling inspired to dream bigger, reach higher, give more and do more every day to make this world a better place.

Here are some of my favorite quotes to inspire you to do the same!

"Make each day your masterpiece." -- Coach John Wooden

"Hitch your wagon to a star." -- Ralph Waldo Emerson

"Wherever you go, go with all your heart." -- Confucius

"Believe & achieve!" -- Deena Kastor

"Don't judge each day by the harvest you reap but by the seeds that you plant." -- Robert Louis Stevenson

"Try not to become a [person] of success, but rather try to become a [person] of value." -- Albert Einstein

"Wherever you go, no matter what the weather, always bring your own sunshine." -- Anthony J. D'Angelo

"Think big thoughts but relish small pleasures." -- H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

"Patience is a bitter seed that bears sweet fruit." -- Greg Woodburn

"It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are." -- e.e. cummings

"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
