There is this quote I discovered in high school that I love.
I found it while searching for an aphorism in my dad's huge Oxford Dictionary of Quotations. I don't think it fits into the technical catergory for an aphorism so I couldn't use it for the writing assignment I had, but it's potent simplicity has stayed with me these 5 or 6 years. I remember marking it's place in the dictionary with an empyt Equal packet from my mom's purse.
I bet it's still in there.
It popped into my head tonight as I was closing a book I had just finished.
We are always getting ready to live, but never living. RWE
