Pinning/Graduation Invitation

  1. [font=Comic Sans MS]Being a poor nursing student, I have decided to make my own pinning/graduation invitations to save a little money. I want to have either a short quote or poem to go on my invitation, but I am having trouble finding meaningful ones. The saying that my school put on their invitations is "May I be a kind and dedicated nurse. . ." While I like this one, I was hoping to find something else that would be inspirational. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Good luck to all the current students and especially to all of my fellow graduates!!!

    Hi, I too did my own invitations...if I can find a copy of one I will send it to you. I used a couple of Florence Nightangale quotes and some clipart that I came across.

    Here's what's going on MY invitation. It's a quote from the theme song to the "Red Dwarf" series. "I want to lie / shipwrecked and comatose / drinking fresh mango juice / goldfish shoals nibbling at my toes".... Hey, it's better than SCHOOL! LOL

    OK seriously... how 'bout "To be prepared is half the victory" by Cervantes? Or, how's this one for appropriate to finishing nursing school - although the administrators might not like it: "Success is to be measured not so much by the position one has reached in life as by the obstacles which he has overcome while trying to succeed." ~ Booker T. Washington. I really like this one, although it's more appropriate to a congratulations card than an invitation: "Go confidently in the direction of your dreams." <-- I stole that one from a piece of art in the Femail Creations catalog.

    how about "may the force be with you" Just kidding. I am not creative enough to come up with a legit quote, but want to congratulate you for reaching your goal.

    Another thought: The only time success comes before work is in the dictionary (anon).
