Were you able to put a quote with your senior picture in the yearbook?

Asked by Addicted2Guard (26points) September 7th, 2008

If yes, do you remember what it was? I need ideas for mine.

we had a separate section for quotes. I forgot to turn mine in, and I don’t quite remember specifics now, but I can guarantee you it was a Metallica lyric.

Mine didn’t have to be a quote. It was initials of my friends and code words that only my friends would know. I bet I wouldn’t even remember what the code was for. Seems so long ago. And it was – as my son is a sophomore in college, and my daughter is a junior in high school.

A favorite quote now is “Watch where you are going, not where you have been.” (don’t know who said it.)

i didnt put this, but someone else did something like this (im not sure the exact words):

“define your life, because if you dont, someone else will define it for you”
—woody allen (i think)

i put

“now you kids are probably thinking you are going to go out into the world and grab it by the tail and put it in your pocket. well im here to tell you that you’re probably not going to amount to jack squat”
-Chris Farley

this is not exact but its just about that

Yeah. Mine was a Calvin and Hobbes line: Change is invigorating! If you don’t accept new challenges, you become complacent and lazy! Your life atrophies! New experiences lead to new questions and new solutions! Change forces us to experiment and adapt! That’s how we learn and grow!

There are a lot of exclamation marks in that.

i think that i’m going to put
”“The tree which moves some to tears of joy is in the eyes of others only a green thing that stands in the way. Some see nature all ridicule and deformity… and some scarce see nature at all. But to the eyes of the man of imagination, nature is imagination itself.”

or this
“Only when the last tree is cut, only when the last river is polluted, only when the last fish is caught, will they realise that you can’t eat money”

In a way…

I had a terrific quote all written out for inclusion in my Class of ‘68 high school yearbook, right below my photograph.

But, the day the yearbook was distrbuted to the students, I quickly opened it to the page where my photo was, and THIS was what appeared, right beneath my photo:

Thanks for the input guys. Lauren, you should do the first one.

Mine was “You all will end up working for me and I’ll take vengance”
My best friend was “The important think is not know, but having the number of the person who does”
Another friend “If I go down, all of you are coming with me”

You know, your question prompted me to pull out my old HS yearbook, to re-read some of the quotes placed beneath the photos, and here are just a few, if you don’t mind me sharing them, and I need to note that we were told that we could only place one “summary sentence” about ourselves beneath our photo, and it couldn’t be longer than so many letters (to include all punctuation). Here is what I found, while thumbing through it, just now:

The stuck-up Capt. of the football team had:
“Don’t call me, I’ll call you.”

The head cheerleader (the most beautiful woman in the entire school) had:
“You ain’t got that much money!”

The class NERD (called, “Brain,”) had:
“Always remember, as you go through life, that the square of the hypotenuse is equal to the sum of the other two sides.”

One jerk had:
“Drop me a line! Write me a line, then drop it!”

And here was the BEST of all of them, IMHO:
“Keep your eye on THIS SPOT for an up-coming announcement!”

Its saying that what you have is probably better than what you wanted before. Meaning, be grateful, because things can be better than your wildest dreams in some ways.
