Quote Collector…

I used to collect random quotes, little tidbits that I had read, heard. There is one quote that I have carried with me for the longest time, and speaks so true to me. I have been contemplating this quote lots lately….

from A Seperate Peace by John Knowles

"Everyone has a moment in history which belongs particularly to him. It is the moment when his emotions achieve their most powerful sway over him, and afterward when you say to this person "the world today" or "life" or "reality" he will assume you mean this moment, even if it fifty years past.

The world, through his unleashed emotions, imprinted itself upon him, and he carries the stamp of that passing moment forever."
