10 Quotes to Help you Through College Orientation

Hi everyone! Since a lot of you are going to be starting college orientation in the coming week or two (if you haven't already), I thought I would share some of my favorite inspirational quotes to help you get through Orientation. It can be a long few days of being in information session after information session without any real time to do what you really want: organize and decorate your room. So, while you're sitting in that session on Alcohol or Registering for classes, check back to this post to keep you inspired!!

"Isn't it fascinating how long a few minutes seem when you are completely alone with not a familiar face in sight?"
~ Kirby Lawson ~

"I was always looking outside myself for strength and confidence, but it comes from within. It is there all the time."
~ Anna Freud ~ 

"Getting ahead in a difficult profession requires avid faith in yourself. That is why some people with mediocre talent, but with great inner drive, go much further than people with vastly superior talent."
~ Sophia Loren ~

"The key to realizing a dream is to focus not on success but significance - and then even the small steps and little victories along your path will take on greater meaning."
~ Oprah Winfrey ~ 

"Books ... are like lobster shells, we surround ourselves withe them, then we grow out of them and leave them behind, as evidence of our earlier stages of development."
~ Dorothy L. Sayers ~

"If we take care of the moments, the years will take care of themselves."
~ Maria Edgeworth ~

"They always say time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself."
~ Andy Warhol ~

"Do what you have to do until you can do what you want to do."
~ Oprah Winfrey ~

"The beautiful thing about learning is that no one can take it away from you."
~ B.B. King ~

"Believe in yourself and all that you are. Know that there is something inside you that is greater than any obstacle."
~ Christian D. Larsen ~

Especially this last one, you will think in the coming days that you are not meant to be at college, whether it's your particular school, the program you joined, the distance from home, or other things in the past that make you question. This is your destiny and you are certainly strong enough to live it. Don't forget that as you overcome your fears and face new challenges in the coming weeks. 

enjoy the chase,
