95 Best Yearbook Quotes for Seniors to Leave Their Mark

Help your soon-to-be-graduate choose a yearbook quote that suits them best!

yearbook quotes

"Oh the places you'll go," when you graduate high school, but what about remembering the places you grew into the person you are today? While it feels like the end of an era—the era that started with long trendy bangs and ended with all those pairs of Crocs your kids insisted they needed—these are the times that need to be remembered!

Just like your Chatbooks photo books, senior yearbooks are filled with memories of the people and places your kids will want to remember. These printed reminders are a great way for all your kids’ peers to remember each other (and scribble their 18-year-old signatures), so when it’s time for them to choose the right quote to represent the end of their high school career, they're going to need some options. Whether your graduate is looking for a quote that leaves a laugh or makes an impression, these senior quotes will leave a mark. Remember: You can also create a personalized yearbook for your senior with our Yearbook photo books. 

Each school year seems to pass by faster than the last, so if you feel the sudden urge to go through their baby photos — or even print every school year photo on Canvas Wall Tiles to hang on the wall — you're not alone. Parents everywhere are feeling the urge to turn back time. And, hey, maybe this is a great opportunity to dig up your old yearbooks, too!
