    Yeah, I don't think any school I've ever been to has had those either. What are they? Is it a statement for the yearbook, or are you speaking at your graduation? Either way, congratulations in advance on your first step towards becoming the future CEO of Apple. ;)

    lol. I was gonna ask the same thing...then dismiss it as "must be a UK thing". Then I see your location.

    So are they like grades? Parent-teacher confrences? Clue me in :)

    50% of all these yearbook blurbs are plagiarism. Just use those good ol' quotation marks.

    I say just quote from a great philosopher. Some that come to mind Sir Thomas More "Utopia", Niccolo Machiavelli "the Prince", Martin Luther "Ninety-Five Thesis", John Locke "Treatise of Civil Government", Thomas Hobbes "Leviathan", Immanuel Kant "Answer to the Question: What is Enlightenment?", Hugh Hefner "Playboy Philosophy":D or Baldassare Castiglione "the Book of the Courtier".
