Graduationwisdom.comGraduation Wisdom is a site full of hard to find inspiring quotes and speeches made over the years during commencement addresses. The site contains a “Favorite Quotes” section where people can submit their favorites, an advice section which focuses on helping you make better speeches, and a “Top Ten” as selected by the site’s webmaster.


Whether you are in the position of having to make a commencement speech over the next couple of months, or just need a bit of motivation, Graduation Wisdom is full of the best, non-generic speeches available. You won’t necessarily find speeches made by famous people here, although Steve Job’s Stanford speech sits at number one in the Top Ten, because the webmaster has correctly concluded that most of those are boring and generic speeches. What you will find, is a wealth of motivating material. In Their Own Words

“Read and get inspired by these hard to find motivational speeches. Have a healthy dose of great inspirational quotes from commencement addresses.”
