Sunday Blessing: Words of Wisdom to All, but Especially Graduates

Sunday Blessing: Words of Wisdom to All, but Especially Graduates

“Imagine life as a game in which you are juggling some five balls in the air. You name them – Work, Family, Health, Friends and Spirit and you’re keeping all of these in the air.
You will soon understand that work is a rubber ball. If you drop it, it will bounce back. But the other four balls – Family, Health, Friends and Spirit – are made of glass. If you drop one of these; they will be irrevocably scuffed, marked, nicked, damaged or even shattered. They will never be the same. You must understand that and strive for it.
Work efficiently during office hours and leave on time. Give the required time to your family, friends and have proper rest. Value has a value only if its value is valued.”
–Brian G. Dyson
President and CEO, Coca-Cola Enterprises during his speech at the Georgia Tech 172nd Commencement Address Sept. 6, 1996

And God says to all of us, you are no chicken; you are an eagle.
Fly, eagle, fly.
And God wants us to shake ourselves,
spread our pinions,
and then lift off and soar and rise,
and rise toward the confident
and the good and the beautiful.
Rise towards the compassionate
and the gentle and the caring.
Rise to become what God intends us to be–eagles, not chickens.
– Desmund Tutu

Congratulations! Today is your day.
You’re off to Great Places! You’re off and away!
You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes.
You can steer yourself in any direction you choose. You’re on your own.
And you know what you know. You are the guy who’ll decide where to go.
—Dr. Seuss, “Oh, the Places You’ll Go!”
