“We’re so young. We’re so young. We’re twenty-two years old. We have so much time. There’s this sentiment I sometimes sense, creeping in our collective conscious as we lie alone after a party, or pack up our books when we give in and go out – that it is somehow too late. That others are somehow ahead. More accomplished, more specialized. More on the path to somehow saving the world, somehow creating or inventing or improving. That it’s too late now to BEGIN a beginning and we must settle for continuance, for commencement.” ~ The Opposite of Loneliness by Marina Keegan
This quote comes from the amazing speech of Marina Keegan called The Opposite of Loneliness. I love this quote because, as a teenager myself, I can completely relate to it. There’s this lingering feeling that as we age we lose opportunity, which is absolutely not the case. Each day is a new opportunity, and just because we’re a year older doesn’t mean we can’t jump at the next chance we see.
