Advice, inspiration, and consolation for those facing life after school.

Sometimes graduates need a gift that is a little more comprehensive than Oh, the Places You’ll Go! This small book is packed full of wisdom from those who have completed their years of schooling and lived to tell their tales—or those who haven’t, but feel the need to add something to the graduation lexicon anyway. From humorous to profound, there’s something for everyone inside:

“It might be said now that I have the best of both worlds. A Harvard education and a Yale degree.” —John F. Kennedy

“A graduation ceremony is an event where the commencement speaker tells thousands of students dressed in identical caps and gowns that ‘individuality’ is the key to success.” —Robert Orben

“We don’t stop going to school when we graduate.” —Carol Burnett

“Everyone has a right to a university degree in America, even if it’s in Hamburger Technology.” —Clive James

Whether your graduate is feeling excited about his or her future or nervous about facing challenges, The Little Red Book of Graduate Wisdom is the perfect gift to cheer, reassure, and show how proud you are for all that they’ve accomplished.
