College Snow Bowl

Famous quotes containing the words college, snow and/or bowl:

    ... [a] girl one day flared out and told the principal “the only mission opening before a girl in his school was to marry one of those candidates [for the ministry].” He said he didn’t know but it was. And when at last that same girl announced her desire and intention to go to college it was received with about the same incredulity and dismay as if a brass button on one of those candidate’s coats had propounded a new method for squaring the circle or trisecting the arc.
    Anna Julia Cooper (1859–1964)

    But pleasures are like poppies spread,
    You seize the flow’r, its bloom is shed;
    Or like the snow falls in the river,
    A moment white—then melts for ever;
    Robert Burns (1759–1796)

    How can I go on, I cannot. Oh just let me flop down flat on the road like a big fat jelly out of bowl and never move again!
    Samuel Beckett (1906–1989)
