Off to college

Off to college shortly, will be back later full of vim and vigour!

Quote to ponder on while i am studying:

“Youth is not a time of life; it is a state of mind; it is not a matter of rosy cheeks, red lips and supple knees; it is a matter of the will, quality of the imagination, a vigor of the emotions; it is the freshness of the deep springs of life.”

by Samuel Ullman.


  1. Vim and vigor eh?

    You have an award, please call by to collect.

  2. Until you try and stand up.

    Or bend down.

  3. Oh ho, so the curmudgeon has the same issues as I have, huh? Try having to get down on the floor and then getting back up -have to make darned sure there is something really strong nearby to grab onto in order to pull myself up. So much for pulling one's self up by the bootstraps, huh?
    Thanks for those little bits of wisdom there about youth and age. 'Preciated that! I did, I did!

  4. Will look forward to hearing about your tales of higher education!

  5. Study hard girlfriend!

  6. The Curmudgeon made me laugh out loud! And I was trying to take the quite to heart, too!
    Good luck with your studies!

  7. Thanks for the comments on my blog :) not to mention your insights into the lives of the 9th century Nordic peoples.

    Good luck with college - I miss my days of higher education: lie-ins, cheap pints, watching Quincy in the afternoons, ah good times (wipes tear from eye).

  8. Supple knees? What the hell does that mean? LOL...supple knees. Ha!

    (It's a very nice quote, I just found that hysterical. 'Course it could be all the codeine I have in me!)
