Something that i care alot about this week is finding a good quote for the yearrbook. First i will define what good is, or the parameters that i'm searching for, so first off i want the quote to be sufficiently cynnical, cynical because the ones that i read in the yearbook this year, for some reason really irritated me. They were too romantic and or idealistic. Its also probably a good question to work out why i feel this way. However moving on, the quote also has to be to some degree thought provoking, i don't want to use anything devoid of any higher meaning, for example, "I like crumpets means absolutely nothing aside from the literal translation. One quote i did find was from a book called Shantaram, "Truth is a bully we all pretend to like". I like this quote for several reasons, one, its from a book that i thoroughly enjoyed and i even named it as my favorite book for a year or so, as well as the fact that it was written by an Australian heroin addict, who currently resides in prison. Thirdly i think it has a certain relvance and again it is on the cynical side. Another possible quote for my yearbook comes from Fyodor Dostoevsky's Crime and Punishment,
This quote i like for a different reason mostly because i do believe in the existence of this quotes phenomenon, and of course the fact that its not too soppy... or religous, which now that i think about it is another area i have no wish to advocate in the yearbook.
All in all a difficult descion lays ahead of me, and now that i've written this article and posted it so anyone could read it, i really am going to have to find something good
