Graduation Day


Life is like the car pool lane. The only way to get to your destination quickly is to take some people with you.

 -Peter Ward

Self-discipline is when your conscious tells you something and you don't talk back 

-W. K. Hope

Do not follow where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.

-Harold R. McAlindon

Excellence can be attained if you...risk more than others think safe. Care more than others think is wise. Dream more than others think is practical. Expect more than others think is possible.

-Cadet Maxim

Without dreams there is no need to dream, and without dreams there is no need to work.


To need to find something to hold onto, something to motivate you, and something to inspire you.
