Friday Sadness

August 24, 2012 § Leave a comment


One of my closest colleagues is leaving today and I’m trying not to cry. I sent him this quote:

‘It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way.’

~ Charles Dickens, A Tale of Two Cities

He replied with the immortal words of Sid Waddell:

‘When Alexander of Macedonia was 33 he cried salt tears because there were no more worlds to conquer. Honor Clement-Hayes is only 23’

Cry.
