Oh, the Places You'll Go!
By Dr. Seuss
I gave a copy of this book to my younger son when he graduated from high school. I wanted him to understand that he was entering an exciting time. What I love about the book is that it starts in one place and takes you through a dark stage. Eventually you come out of it, but the book makes it clear that to get where you need to be, you have to make your own path. I've quoted from this book in many of the commencement addresses I've delivered. In fact, I thought it was so fabulous that one holiday season I gave the book to all the people in my division at work.
