End-of-the-semester advice, just for you

It’s graduation time, kids, which means advice is going to be flying at your head from all different directions–including this one.

First, we’ll look close to home. Scotty Hurst, an Ivy Tech Northeast student, shared a piece of great advice he received this semester:

The absolute best piece of advice I’ve received this semester was simple: ‘Don’t Panic.’ It’s what Ford Prefect constantly told Arthur Dent throughout ‘The Hitchhikers Guide to The Galaxy.’ I’m someone who turns simple dilemmas into life-threatening issues, so it totally got me through certain complications. Me and the fiance have it tattooed on our wrists.”

A few more gems, suggestions, perhaps, for you to add to the next graduation card you sign:

“Apply yourself. Get all the education you can, but then, by God, do something. Don’t just stand there. Make it happen.” ~Lee Iacocca

“A good education is another name for happiness.” ~Ann Plato

“Education’s purpose is to replace an empty mind with an open one.” ~Malcolm Forbes

“Education is an admirable thing, but it is well to remember from time to time that nothing that is worth knowing can be taught.” ~Oscar Wilde

“Not too soon and not too late; the secret of education lies in choosing the right time to do things.” ~Natalia Ginzburg

What’s the best advice you’ve received?

Green Light will take a break until summer classes start. See you again June 12!
