Congratulations, Class of 2013!

Best wishes to you from PPP!

Here are a few uplifting quips and quotes for you from our mini gift book DREAM BIG: Inspirations for the Graduate, compiled by our own editor, Vicki Fischer.

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

Hold to your true selves. Realize the tremendous opportunities available to you and trust in yourselves as you use individual ingenuity to define your life and role in the world.
Robert Redford

At commencement you wear your square-shaped mortarboards. My hope is that from time to time you will let your minds be bold, and wear sombreros.
Paul Freund

Believe that the sort of life you wish to live is, at this very moment, just waiting for you to summon it up. And when you wish for it, you begin moving toward it, and it, in turn, begins moving toward you.
Suzan-Lori Parks
