Just as treasures are uncovered from the earth, so does virtue appear from good deeds, and wisdom appears from pure and peaceful mind. To walk safely through the maze of human life, a student needs the light of wisdom and the guidance of virtue. People say student life is the best part of life; learning many things from books. We now stand on the threshold ready to enter the real world acquiring practical knowledge of things, preparing to lead a successful life after this student life is over. This may have been a life of learning yet this was a care-free life, a life of joy, a golden period of life, a life of character building. Here I must admit something. It was a truly memorable period of my life. My friends were there to impart an infinite joy to even a simple experience. We shall always treasure these memories. My teachers are the epitome of all that I want to be and admire. When God created teachers, he gave us special friends to help us understand His world and truly comprehend the beauty and the wonder of everything we see, and become a better person with each discovery. When God created teachers, he gave us special guides to show us ways in which to grow so we can all decide how to live and how to do what's right instead of wrong, to lead us so that we can lead and learn how to be strong. Why God created teachers, in His wisdom and His grace, was to help us learn to make our world a better, wiser place. They even made me believe in the imagination. I learnt that what I cannot see is infinitely more important than what I can see. All successful people men and women are big dreamers who imagine what their future could be, ideal in every respect. “Trust no future; however pleasant!

Let the dead past bury its dead!
Act in the living present
Heart within and God o’er head”
