And for the traditional favorite of all time, check out this rare footage of the English romantic composer Sir Edward Elgar in 1931 conducting the famous excerpt from his March No. 1, Pomp and Circumstance. Composed in 1901, this classic masterpiece inspires dreams and warms hearts at  graduation.

Lyrics to “Pomp and Circumstance”

Land of hope and glory,
Mother of the free.
How shall we extol thee,
Who are born of thee.
Wider still and wider,
Shall thy bounds be set.
God who made thee mighty
Make thee mightier yet.
God who made thee mighty
Make thee mightier yet.

“Graduation is only a concept. In real life every day you graduate. Graduation is a process that goes on until the last day of your life. If you can grasp that, you’ll make a difference.” Arie Pencovici

Share a great graduation memory!

Excellence is the result of caring more than others think is wise, risking more than others think is safe, dreaming more than others think is practical, and expecting more than others think is possible. —Anonymous
