Yearbook quotes...then and now

It’s that time of the year again. As I read my friend’s son’s year book ( :eek: ) I cast my mind back to the last days of high school (1985) and my choices for quotes.

I passed up the Springsteen classic

“For the ones who had a notion, yeah the notion deep inside, that it ain’t no sin to be glad you’re alive / I wanna find one place that ain’t lookin through me / I wanna find one place, I wanna spit in the face of these Badlands”

for the less strident Springsteen classic

“Someday we’ll look back on this and it will all seem funny.”

I keep hoping for the day when that’s true. :slight_smile:

Today I’m into the acceptance of lives and its ups and downs, so probably something from Ecclesiastes/“Turn Turn Turn”

  1. What was your yearbook quote then?

  2. What quote would sum up life over the past few years?


As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end.


Spend as much time as you can with the nice people; it barely begins to make up for the time you have to spend with the jerks.

Then: The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams. Eleanor Roosevelt.

Now: see sig.

I’m graduating on Friday.
