Default Can any lyric be used as a senior quote

They're my favorite band but I haven't found anything (if there is anything) suitable for a senior quote... if there is, thanks for sharing! Also, I will also accept solo song lyrics from any of the band members (preferably Don and Glenn but only because I know more of their songs, otherwise it doesn't matter).

I liked the part in HOTE where Joe talks about that philosopher, but it's long and not really his original quote. I also liked Glenn saying "we wanted to become a band for our time, but sometimes if you do a good enough job, you become a band for all time". Great quote.

Soda, our admin, is an English professor so she would be a great resource for that. Hopefully she sees this.

I plan on using the line from The Long Run “Who is gonna make it, we’ll find out in the long run” as my senior quote. I like the idea of it kinda saying “in time we’ll find out who is truly succesful”

What’s a senior quote? Advice you give to students when they are finishing up school?

In some high school yearbooks, seniors will have their picture and then below it is a "senior quote" where they can say almost anything they want.

Congratulations, captainnemo, on your upcoming graduation!
Obviously by my signature, I'm a fan of It's Your World Now. But as graduating seniors are now independent of their parents, I believe the message translates well:
It's your world now
Use well your time
Be part of something good
Leave something good behind.
-------
From Glenn's solo work:
Soul Searchin'

You know you can't change this world
But you can change yourself.
-------
Also, to your fellow classmates, the unreleased:
Fare Thee Well, My Brother

May the grace of God be with you
May you never walk alone.
-------
And a song by Randy that was often a class song back in my day:
Take It To The Limit
One More Time!
-------

Here's one I'd suggest from Glenn's "Common Ground":

"It's time to wake up, people, and take a look around
We all stand on common ground."


Or this one from "Hole in the World":



"Until we we learn to love one another

We never reach the promised land".

I graduated college a little bit ago, and I put "you know I've always been a dreamer" from Take It To The Limit on my graduation cap! I had a hard time deciding on a lyric too, but hopefully these posts provide some inspiration.

FF as a teacher I am sometimes asked to write a quote for our 6th years graduation programme when they finish up. We don’t do the big year book thing that American schools do over here. But I have used the ‘it’s your world now’ quite too. I think it carries a very clear message.

That's great, GA! Just another example of how Glenn's music continues to inspire every day. I hope the kids took the words to heart!
