Hi Everyone Smile

One of my best friends from high school (who I've grown apart from these last few years) is graduating tonight from college. I bought the book "Oh The Places You Will Go" by Dr.Seuss and would like to write something in it but I don't have a clue what to write. Anyone have any good ideas for a poem, lyrics, or quote that I could put in it? Thanks!

Here's a quick smattering for you:

"We don't receive wisdom; we must discover it for ourselves after a journey that no one can take for us or spare us."
~Marcel Proust (1871-1922)

"The journey of a thousand leagues begins with a single step. So we must never neglect any work of peace within our reach, however small."
~Adlai E. Stevenson (1900-1965)

"The road of life twists and turns and no two directions are ever the same. Yet our lessons come from the journey, not the destination."
~Don Williams Jr. (1968 - )

"Intellectual growth should commence at birth and cease only at death."
~Albert Einstein (1879-1955)

"Dream as if you'll live forever, live as if you'll die today."
~James Dean (1931-1955)

"Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive."
~Howard Thurman (1900-1981)

"One day your life will flash before your eyes. Make sure its worth watching."
~Attributed to Samuel L. Clemens (Mark Twain 1835-1910)


...

“Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not yet come. We have only today. Let us begin.”
~Mother Teresa (1910-1997)

It is difficult to say what is impossible, for the dream of yesterday is the hope of today and the reality of tomorrow.
-Robert H. Goddard

In every phenomenon the beginning remains always the most notable moment.
-Thomas Carlyle

No love, no friendship can cross the path of our destiny without leaving some mark on it forever.
-Francois Muriac

Sooner or later we all discover that the important moments in life are not the advertised ones, not the birthdays, the graduations, the weddings, not the great goals achieved. The real milestones are less prepossessing. They come to the door of memory.
-Susan B. Anthony

The question is not whether we will die, but how we will live.
-Joan Borysenko

The essential conditions of everything you do must be choice, love, passion.
-Nadia Boulanger

Well DAMN but it's good to see your tag again, old Harvacious one!

Now if Jess would just show her little face...

(Am I dwelling on the past?)

"Thought I'd visit the club
Got as far as the door
They'd have asked me about you
Don't get around much anymore

Oh, Darling I guess my mind's more at ease
But nevertheless, why stir up, I still have those memories...

~Bob Russel & Duke Ellington
