Inspiring words on graduation day: Lead, Shine and Know Your Power

RUTH BADER GINSBURG

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg:

“Fight for the things that you care about, but do it in a way that will lead others to join you.”

Madeleine Albright: Shine bright like a diamond.
“I hope that you will go forward with confidence, despite the burdens handed down to you by others; that you will employ your talents to keep pace with technology — while remembering that there is no technological answer to the questions that matter most; that you will take pride in who you are, but leave room for the pride of others; and that by your actions, you will each add luster to Dickinson’s name — and to your own.” (Dickinson College)

Nancy Pelosi: Know your power.
“Remember this: with the knowledge gained here, you can do anything. You may not be aware of the opportunities that await you, but when those opportunities present themselves, be ready. Be idealistic, be pragmatic, be ready. That’s a lesson I’ve taken to heart in my own experience. Although with my generation, I was inspired by John F. Kennedy, I had no idea I’d go from the kitchen to Congress, from homemaker to House Speaker… My wish is that you know your power to light the future with your ideals and your optimism.” (University of California at Berkeley)
