14 Motivational Quotes For The Stressed Student
Nichole Burrows

Its almost the end of April. For students that means one thing: finals are coming. And for seniors in college, graduation seems only minutes away and while some know where they're going after they toss the mortar board caps, others are still in full panic mode, searching for jobs or waiting to hear back from graduate programs. Its a time where stress spreads like the common cold at a daycare and some are on the verge of a complete break down. It's times like these where we could all use some extra motivation to make it to the finish line.

Some of the world's brightest individuals faced severe obstacles and multiple failures. It's important to remember that failure and stress are a part of life. If you look past the obstacles and keep your goals in sight you can succeed, even if you've failed dozens of times before. Finals week and job hunting are just minor obstacles on the path to making our mark in society and the education we are working toward is a gift. So, here I present to you a list of motivational quotes from the world's greatest minds to think to yourself on the days when you're ready to throw in the towel.
