The Road Not Taken

Another quote for you. I have always loved this one, especially the last line.
How many times have you had to choose a direction to go…and that decision made all the difference?

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

Robert Frost, The Road Not Taken.

Collecting Quotes

It looks like I will be adding a catagory for quotes.  Here is a quote from C.S Lewis that I just found. 

Love anything and your heart will be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact you must give it to no one, not even an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements. Lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket–safe, dark, motionless, airless–it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable. To love is to be vulnerable. ~ C.S. Lewis

Rejection

I was rejected today, in a big way.  I had applied for a job that I was 99.9% sure I was going to get. The job description described my skills to a T.  The application process was long and drawn out consisting of tests and interviews.  I did well on all of them.   Today they called, I didn’t make it to the top 3.  Ouch!

So how do you deal with rejection.  Continue reading “Rejection”

Tell Me About Yourself

Here is a quote I came across today.  For some reaon it resonated with me.

Tell me about yourself now, simply, one thing at a time.
Who are you? Where do you come from? What parents? What place?
What manner of ship did you sail in?
Why did the sailors abandon you here?

Homer, The Odyssey, Book I, ll.197-99
