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.

Van's signature


The quotes:

Though no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending.
     - Carl Bard

Keep moving.
     - Hunter S. Thompson

You're going to have to find out where you want to go. And then you've got to start going there. But immediately. You can't afford to lose a minute.
     - Jerome David Salinger (b. 1919)

Waiting until everything is perfect before making a move is like waiting to start a trip until all the traffic lights are green.
     - Karen Ireland

A year from now you may wish you had started today.
     - Karen Lamb

I find the great thing in this world is not so much where we stand, as in what direction we are moving - we must sail sometimes with the wind and sometimes against it - but we must sail, and not drift, nor lie at anchor.
     - Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr, 1841 - 1935
