As many of you know, I am in my last year of University and am now heading into the last few months of my degree. With so much going on such as exams, assignments and job applications, it is so easy to become stressed and overwhelmed. So, whenever I start to feel like it’s all getting a bit too much, I like to read over some of my favourite university quotes that remind me to keep going and persevere for graduation. Today, I am going to share with you a few of my favourite quotes that will hopefully inspire you too and motivate you to get you through University.
“You don’t go to university so you can punch a clock. You go to university so you can be in a position to make a difference.” — Janet NapolitanoI love this quote as it reminds me that although sometimes it may feel like I go to University just for the sake of it, it gives me an opportunity to learn how to make a difference in the world and how to make my mark.
“Instruction ends in the schoolroom, but education ends only with life.” — Frederick W. RobertsonThis is a really interesting quote as at first, I didn’t really understand it but after spending a bit more time thinking about it I think it’s such a beautiful thing to remember. All those instructions we get given throughout University and School are coming to an end but our education isn’t. One definition of education is ‘an enlightening experience’ and this definitely does not end with University. We experience this our whole lives.
“You are so close to the victory, don’t you dare give up now.”Reading this quote always helps me to focus on my goal and remind me that the end is near. I just need to focus on my work and job applications and before I know it I will be graduating.
“You get in life what you have the courage to ask for.” — Oprah WinfreyI am a shy person and a people pleaser. This means that I hate asking for things because I am worried I will be greeted with a lot of no’s. However, this quote is a great reminder that if you don’t have the courage to ask you will never get. It could all start with a question and you could end up getting your dream job or your dream house. All you need is a bit of courage.
“You don’t want to look back and know you could’ve done better.”This quote I have referred too throughout all my school years as whenever I’m feeling de-motivated and can’t be bothered with work, I think about this quote and how when I look back on my life I want to know that I tried my best. I don’t have to have all the best grades but as long as I tried my best and did all I could, I will be proud of myself.
“There is no elevator to success. You have to take the stairs.” — Zig ZiglarThis is my favourite quote for when I’m struggling under the weight of work and I am finding it hard to keep up with everything. Sometimes I just want to give up and leave University so I can move on with my life. Then I read this quote and remember that there is no easy way to success. You have to work hard and put in the effort if you want to achieve great things. You get out of life what you put in.
So, although there aren’t many, those are my favourite University quotes that inspire me to get me through University and work hard.
