Quotes of the Day for 24 September 2004 – Fresh Starts
Stuck for a theme, I went to the folder of requests. The three most recent were in unison, all reported leaving one situation to take another run at life from another place. One is leaving a southwestern university for a community college, planning to jack up his GPA. One is heading from Kansas to San Francisco, there's a contrast for you! And one is moving to Philadelphia, current location not mentioned. So for those three, and any others that are contemplating a new direction, here's to fresh starts.

- Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr, 1841 - 1935
