Graduating write-up

I'm graduating this year.[citation needed] As a direct consequence, my classmates and I are doing Senior write-ups, which include future plans and a quote. XKCD has been a consistently interesting medium in my life for a long time (before I was able to understand half the jokes, and had to wait until my oldest brother explained the joke before I could laugh.) and I want to acknowledge that by quoting Munroe (or one of his comics/what-ifs, crediting him) as my Senior quote.

This being the official forums of xkcd, I'd like to know what you all think would make a good school-appropriate inspirational/funny/inspirationally funny quote from Munroe, xkcd or "What if?" Thanks in advance for any responses, and I'll conclude by preemptively apologizing if this is the wrong topic for this post.

Possibly useful?

To be entirely honest, I hadn't thought of that; unfotunately, the best quote I can find on that page is "You were once shoved headfirst through someone's vagina. Why are you acting so dignified?" I'm not so sure they'd be willing to put that in the yearbook. More progress than I had than before though, so thanks!

Reading that page, I quite liked this one, and any yearbook committee would see fit to print it:
The wonderful thing about science is that it doesn't ask for your faith, it just asks for your eyes.

"Vagina" is not a dirty word and neither is the act being described. Go for it.
