Hey everyone!
I need some help to choose a grad quote. I'll be graduating high school in June and I need a quote to put in the year book. Anyone have any ideas for me?

I don't really want some super generic "grad quote". I want some crazy ideas.

Sorry, this is not by any stretch of the imagination "crazy" but I like the quote and the story (legend) behind it: "This too shall pass"

We don't do yearbooks over here, but I had the impression that these sort of quotes should be something more personal?

Why not ask people who actually know you and could come up with something fitting rather than a bunch of strangers on the internet?
Cheers,
Ava.

I'm not really the kind of person who likes to spill my guts to everyone. I'm more of a person who likes to make fun of the whole idea of something so that's why I'm asking people I don't know and why I want something a little more ridiculous for my grad quote.

there is this great resources over here: https://www.goodreads.com/quotes

we had quotes in our yearbooks too. i graduated from highschool twice (long story) and so i could use two. the first one i quoted a friend of mine, and the second time i used one from schiller "Geben Sie Gedankenfreiheit!" (roguhly "give people freedom of thought"), from a play we had read the year before.

do you have a favourite writer maybe, then it would be nice to quote him or her. or a line from a song.

if i would graduate again i would use this line from a lorde song: "im kind of over getting told to throw my hands up in the air". but then i was really tired of high school by the time i graduated.

Well, if you're finishing high school, there's always:

"Get a job
Sha na na na - sha na na na na"

And if you don't get a job after high school your parents can tell you...
"Take out the papers and the trash
Or you don't get no spendin' cash
And when you're finished doin' that..."

this might be late but here are a couple that i like:

"when life gets you down, do you know what you've gotta do? Just keep swimming" ~Dory

"Learn a lesson from a dog-- No matter what life brings you, kick some grass over it and move on."

"To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all." ~Oscar Wilde

"My doctor asked if any members of my family suffer from insanity, I replied, No, we all seem to enjoy it!

"I'm going to be very busy in the after life ... the list of people I'm going to haunt grows every day!"

"the biggest lie I tell myself is: 'I don't need to write it down I'll remember it'"
--Winter


If you have a correction for me give it gently -- I'm young and I learn fast.

I read to escape reality."
