Motivation as the last round of final exams, projects, and tests approach might be hard to come by. To finish this semester strong and with confidence, take a look at these inspiring quotes for students to motivate you to reach the finish line!2: “Do not go where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.” Ralph Waldo Emerson Following a plan when you graduate—or not following one—is the whole point of this quote. You may need a bit of confidence to finish the semester strong if you don’t want to follow a traditional “path.” Emerson is a widely quoted poet who often is used for inspiration by students and adults alike—find more of his quotes floating around on Pinterest or other places!3: “Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined.” Henry David Thoreau Confidence is the name of the game! If you have confidence in what lies ahead, especially your dreams, the next few months will fly by. Even if you’re a bit unsure about your plans, life goes on. Thoreau is correct: if you have confidence in what you want to do, success is bound to follow sooner or later! This quote has popped up a few times for me, and I thought that Thoreau’s words would be very beneficial for others, too! Henry David Thoreau, similar to Emerson, often is quoted for his poetry and writings.“Working hard is important, but there is something that even more: believing in yourself.” - Harry Potter The ever so popular book series and movie franchise of Harry Potter has quite a few inspirational gems hidden under all of the Chosen One narrative. If you need a reminder to take a step back as the final few months approach, here it is. Finishing the semester strong, with self-confidence and prioritizing you, is equally as important as the school work that’s coming your way. Harry Potter as a character has a lot of confidence in himself, so take heart: if he can survive seven years of Hogwarts, you can survive the next few months! 6: “Life is not about how fast you run or how high you climb but how well you bounce.” -Vivian Komari I originally had attributed this quote to Tigger (yes, the one from Winnie the Pooh!) but I found a different attribution in looking up the quote. Regardless of who this quote comes from, the message of the quote is to stay flexible, despite the ups and downs! Reminding yourself of how resilient you are is certain to help you finish the semester strong, so keep this quote in mind as the semester comes to a close.
