It’s the end of April, and college students everywhere can finally see a faint light at the end of an exceedingly long, dark tunnel. Even though there’s only one week left of school, stress levels are at an all-time high due to final exams. I’ve compiled a list (in no particular order) of quotes from brilliant people that feel painfully relatable for some reason as finals are rapidly approaching. Take a look!
- “There are only the pursued, the pursuing, the busy and the tired.” ~ F. Scott Fitzgerald
- “We may encounter many defeats but we must not be defeated.” ~ Maya Angelou
- “I love sleep. My life has the tendency to fall apart when I’m awake, you know?” ~Ernest Hemingway
- “We could never learn to be brave and patient if there were only joy in the world.” ~Helen Keller
- “To achieve great things, two things are needed: a plan and not quite enough time.” ~Leonard Bernstein
- “Never put off till tomorrow what you can do the day after tomorrow.” ~Mark Twain
- “What hath night to do with sleep?” ~ John Milton
- “We are so scared of being judged that we look for every excuse to procrastinate.” ~Erica Jong
The thought of taking final exams next week is petrifying, but luckily, I do have some motivational words to offer. To quote John Green, “Every year, many, many stupid people graduate from college. And if they can do it, so can you.”
Good luck, friends!
