College Quotes

Packing means going through old memories, one of which was a folder full of quotes and pictures I hung on my dorm room door in college seven years ago.  I think the quotes capture the highs and lows of my interests pretty well.

  • “Love at first sight is easy to understand; it’s when two people have been looking at each other for a lifetime that it becomes a miracle.”
  • “When people are free to do as they please, they usually imitate each other.”
  • “You can’t have everything.  Where would you put it?”
  • “In dreams I was lifted up.  Borne from the darkness about rivers of fire, on wings soft as the wind.  What’s happening to the world?  Is everything sad going to come untrue?”
  • “Death twitches my ear.  ‘Live,’ he says, ‘I am coming.'”
  • “There is no remedy for love but to love more.”
  • “Evaporate, tall person!”
  • “One doesn’t discover new lands without consenting to lose sight of the shore.”
  • “Human beings, who are almost unique in having the ability to learn from the experience of others, are also remarkable for their apparent disinclination to do so.”
  • “When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left and could say, ‘I used everything you gave me.'”

(I didn’t keep track of who wrote these quotes, so I apologize for the lack of accreditation.  They definitely aren’t mine!)
