Graduation

I told myself I wanted to avoid using quotes in this blog, but today reality struck. Even after four years of studiously reading and developing my ability to write the English language, I must admit that I simply cannot find the words for certain occasions. The blur of today’s events is such an instance. Ergo, my thoughts in the words of some who have gone before me:

“Lord, make me an instrument of your peace; where there is hatred, let me sow love; where there is injury, pardon; where there is doubt, faith; where there is despair, hope; where there is darkness, light; where there is sadness, joy. Grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console, to be understood as to understand; to be loved as to love. For it is in giving that we receive, it is in pardoning that we are pardoned, it is in dying that we are born to eternal life. Amen.”

-Prayer of St. Francis

“Your the best … just wish I could have done more for you, wish we had more time. Anyway, may the wind always be at your back, and the sun always upon your face, and may the wings of destiny carry you aloft to dance with the stars.”

-George Jung; Blow

“I can scarcely bid you good bye, even in a letter. I always made an awkward bow.”

-John Keats; Final Letter
