― Mark Twain

The days spent in your college life are your salad days, they say. Everyone who has gone past this phase agrees and reminisces the serenity college life offers. We have compiled a few quotes that you must read before you bid adieu to your college life.

1. “You have four years to be irresponsible here. Relax. Work is for people with jobs. You’ll never remember class time, but you’ll remember the time you wasted hanging out with your friends. So, stay out late. Go out on a Tuesday with your friends when you have a paper due Wednesday. Spend the money you don’t have. Drink ’til sunrise. The work never ends, but college does.”– Tom Petty    

2. “For college seniors, there should be a week of being allowed to cry. Just break down and cry because you are scared and don’t know what’s next.”– Bill Cosby

3. “I turned down a scholarship to Yale. The problem with college is that there’s a tendency to mistake preparation for productivity. You can prepare all you want, but if you never roll the dice you’ll never be successful.”– Shia LaBeouf

4. “I’m going to college. I don’t care if it ruins my career. I’d rather be smart than a movie star.”– Natalie Portman

5. “If you tell folks you’re a college student, folks are so impressed. You can be a student in anything and not have to know anything. Just say toxicology or marine biokinesis, and the person you’re talking to will change the subject to himself.

9. “I think everyone should go to college and get a degree and then spend six months as a bartender and six months as a cab driver. Then they would really be educated.”– Al McGuire

10. “By going to the movies, and because of other things, too, going to college, making a wide variety of friends, moving around travelling, I became a lot more open-minded than the heritage I was born into might have suggested.”– Roger Ebert
