Inspirational College Quotes Will Make You Feel Things

If nothing teaches you better than an empty pocket and a broken heart-then college life teaches you the best. Here are the best Inspirational College Quotes that will Make You Feel Things.

Being broken and confused like hell, with tons of assignments with deadlines, millions of tests and exams to conquer, and preparing for the placement drives, in the end, college or university may seriously suck. But it is hands down one of the best phases in life. People who have somehow passed all the semesters and got out of university carry nostalgia in their hearts forever. And for the ones, who are yet to live it, just wait for the roller-coaster to unfold and remember to enjoy each and every moment of the ride.

From living the best moments to experiencing the most embarrassing situations, from making everlasting bonds to knowing about some bitter humans, from falling in love for the first time just to be left with a broken heart, college is a miniature world in itself.
