Graduation Quotes for Daughter from Dad

To some, graduating was just one page of a book. In a capitalist world, like the one we live in, even a degree could not guarantee anything. Though some of it may be true, you still have now gathered a widespread perception, even more so as you have seen your daughter grow. It’s astounding how we tend to observe growth in people close to us, in comparison to ourselves, and it is disappointing how little credit we give ourselves, sometimes, for achieving outstanding milestones, like graduating. The Key to happiness is, appreciating the small things in life. So, make sure you appreciate her every step of the way, no matter how small it may seem.

I closed my eyes and saw greater things that are awaiting you in the future. This is the best thing that I and your mom want for you. Happy graduation day!

Congratulations! Moving through all the challenges of life to make it this far is an achievement. It’s your day, have a blast.

I am proud of who you’ve turned out to be. This is the beginning of many more achievements. Let’s toast to your success today!

On this special day, I take this opportunity to congratulate you on your outstanding achievement. Cheer up and enjoy your day.

Start each day with ambition and well-set goals. I wish you a prosperous life. Just believe in yourself. Happy graduation day!

The moment I heard the news of your graduation I was so happy that I can’t explain it in words. Congrats and happy graduation!

“Congrats to the new grad! From here on out, the sky is the limit, so spread your wings and soar! All the best for the future!”
