Visiting Alma Mater quotes by Paul Beatty
#1. She was thinking about how her middle-school alma mater was now 75 percent Latino, when in her day it was 80 percent black. Thinking #Quote by Paul Beatty
Visiting Alma Mater quotes by Ree Drummond
#2. We danced to John Michael Montgomery's "I Swear." We cut the seven-tiered cake, electing not to take the smear-it-on-our-faces route. We visited and laughed and toasted. We held hands and mingled. But after a while, I began to notice that I hadn't seen any of the tuxedo-clad groomsmen--particularly Marlboro Man's friends from college--for quite some time.
"What happened to all the guys?" I asked.
"Oh," he said. "They're down in the men's locker room."
"Oh, really?" I asked. "Are they smoking cigars or something?"
"Well…" He hesitated, grinning. "They're watching a football game."
I laughed. "What game are they watching?" It had to be a good one.
"It's…ASU is playing Nebraska," he answered.
ASU? His alma mater? Playing Nebraska? Defending national champions? How had I missed this? Marlboro Man hadn't said a word. He was such a rabid college football fan, I couldn't believe such a monumental game hadn't been cause to reschedule the wedding date. Aside from ranching, football had always been Marlboro Man's primary interest in life. He'd played in high school and part of college. He watched every televised ASU game religiously--for the nontelevised games, he relied on live reporting from Tony, his best friend, who attended every game in person.
"I didn't even know they were playing!" I said. I don't know why I shouldn't have known. It was September, after all. But it just hadn't crossed my mind. I'd been a little on the busy side, I guess, #Quote by Ree Drummond
Visiting Alma Mater quotes by Flea
#3. About 13-14 years ago, I went back to my alma mater, Fairfax High School, and ran into the music teacher. She invited me to come speak to the kids about the viability of a music career. When I went into the room where I used to play every day in a big orchestra, they had nothing! #Quote by Flea
Visiting Alma Mater quotes by Bruce A. Sarte
#4. Here beneath the towering pines, by the river blue
Farragut will ever stand, alma mater true #Quote by Bruce A. Sarte
Visiting Alma Mater quotes by Annie Potts
#5. I have taught some master classes and things at my alma mater and sometimes at my kids' school. I will go in and talk to the theater students. I wouldn't really call myself a teacher. #Quote by Annie Potts
Visiting Alma Mater quotes by Henry Fielding
#6. There is nothing so useful to man in general, nor so beneficial to particular societies and individuals, as trade. This is that alma mater, at whose plentiful breast all mankind are nourished. #Quote by Henry Fielding
Visiting Alma Mater quotes by Alex Haley
#7. I certainly wasn't seeking any degree, the way a college confers a status symbol upon its students. My homemade education gave me, with every additional book that I read, a little bit more sensitivity to the deafness, dumbness and blindness that was afflicting the black race in America. Not long ago, an English writer telephoned me, asking questions. One was, "What's your alma mater?" I told him, "Books. #Quote by Alex Haley
Visiting Alma Mater quotes by Samantha Jayne
#8. My alma mater implored me
to send them a donation.
If anything, I should write them
an equal invitation. #Quote by Samantha Jayne
Visiting Alma Mater quotes by Vicki Lawrence
#9. I went to UCLA, my dad's alma mater, and that was his dream. #Quote by Vicki Lawrence
Visiting Alma Mater quotes by Edward Norton
#10. To cite my own alma mater, it's shocking to me that Yale University can teach what it teaches at the Yale School of Environmental Studies and utterly fail to mirror those values in any way in its investment practices. #Quote by Edward Norton
Visiting Alma Mater quotes by Kathryn Lasky
#11. Hail to St. Aegolius Our Alma Mater. Hail, our song we raise in praise of thee Long in the memory of every loyal owl Thy splendid banner emblazoned be. Now to thy golden talons Homage we're bringing. Guiding symbol of our hopes and fears Hark to the cries of eternal praises ringing Long may we triumph in the coming years. - The Owls of St. Aegolius #Quote by Kathryn Lasky
Visiting Alma Mater quotes by Emma Keene
#12. I turn to my mom as she sets her purse down on the table near the front door. I think about telling her. She deserves to know about the letter, I know that, but she was so proud of the fact that I was going to attend her alma mater and be a teacher just like her... I can't do it, not yet. "Oh... #Quote by Emma Keene
Visiting Alma Mater quotes by Gillian Flynn
#13. My parents have always worried that I'd take Amy too personally - they always tell not to read too much into her, And yet I can't fail to notice that whenever I screw something up, Amy does it right: When I finally quit violin at age twelve, Amy was revealed as a prodigy in the next book. ("Sheesh, violin can be hard work, but handwork is the only way to get better!") When I blew off the junior championship at age sixteen to do a beach weekend with friends, Amy recommitted to the game. ("Sheesh, I know it's fun to spend time with friends, but I'd be letting myself and everyone else down if I didn't show up for the tournament.") This used to drive me mad, but after I wend off to Harvard (and Amy correct those my parents' alma mater), I decided it was all too ridiculous to think about. That my parents, two child psychologists, chose this particular public form of passive-aggressiveness toward their child was not just fucked up but also stupid and weird and kind of hilarious. #Quote by Gillian Flynn
Visiting Alma Mater quotes by Thomas Hughes
#14. While one was an undergraduate, one could feel virtuous and indignant at the vices of Oxford, at least at those which one did not indulge in, particularly at the flunkeyism and money-worship which are our most prevalent and disgraceful sins. But when one is a fellow it is quite another affair. They become a sore burthen then, enough to break one's heart. #Quote by Thomas Hughes
Visiting Alma Mater quotes by Henry Rosovsky
#15. Public image is extremely important in American society and I observed personally that the Presidency of John F. Kennedy did much in the public mind for Harvard. Harvard was an excellent school before Kennedy, but Kennedy embodied a new vision for the United States: a leader who caught the world's imagination and that reflected on his alma mater, Harvard. #Quote by Henry Rosovsky
Visiting Alma Mater quotes by Sarah Vowell
#16. Take for example the commencement address he [James Garfield] delivered at his alma mater Hiram College in the summer of 1880 ... The only thing stopping this address from turning into a slacker parable is the absence of the word 'dude'. #Quote by Sarah Vowell
Visiting Alma Mater quotes by John Katzman
#17. The Internet will save higher education, but it may kill your alma mater. #Quote by John Katzman
Visiting Alma Mater quotes by Andy Weir
#18. One big bonus: e-mail! Just like the days back on Hermes, I get data dumps. Of course, they relay e-mail from friends and family, but NASA also sends along choice messages from the public. I've gotten e-mail from rock stars, athletes, actors and actresses, and even the President. One of them was from my alma mater, the University of Chicago. They say once you grow crops somewhere, you have officially "colonized" it. So technically, I colonized Mars. In your face, Neil Armstrong! #Quote by Andy Weir
Visiting Alma Mater quotes by Rebecca Traister
#19. Nora Ephron explained in a 1996 commencement address at her alma mater, Wellesley College, about her own graduating class of 1962: "We weren't meant to have futures, we were meant to marry them. We weren't meant to have politics, or careers that mattered, or opinions or lives; we were meant to marry them. If you wanted to be an architect, you married an architect." Both #Quote by Rebecca Traister
Visiting Alma Mater quotes by Sarah Dessen
#20. I was distracted, thinking about what she'd said, until she got to this last part. "Sherman?" I said.
She nodded. "That's John and Craig's friend. He's visiting from Shreveport."
"Sherman from Shreveport?" I said. "This is the guy you're determined I go out with?"
"You can't judge a book by its cover!" she snapped. When I slid my eyes toward Forbidden, she grabbed it up, shoving it back under the bed. "You know what I mean. Sherman might be very nice. #Quote by Sarah Dessen
Visiting Alma Mater quotes by Tahereh Mafi
#21. Funny, how accustomed I'd become to visiting her here; how it gave me a strange sense of comfort to know that she and I were living in the same building. Her presence on base changed everything for me; the weeks she spent here became the first I ever enjoyed living in these quarters. I looked forward to her temper. Her tantrums. Her ridiculous arguments. I wanted her to yell at me; I would've congratulated her had she ever slapped me in the face. I was always pushing her, toying with her emotions. I wanted to meet the real girl trapped behind the fear. I wanted her to finally break free of her own carefully constructed restraints. #Quote by Tahereh Mafi
Visiting Alma Mater quotes by Jean Thompson
#22. I am a tourist of the emotions, visiting only the most well-worn spots. It is romantic, that is, a distortion, to imagine whole lives from the barest observation. #Quote by Jean Thompson
Visiting Alma Mater quotes by James Joyce
#23. What in water did Bloom, waterlover, drawer of water, watercarrier, returning to the range, admire?

Its universality: its democratic equality and constancy to its nature in seeking its own level: its vastness in the ocean of Mercator's projection: its unplumbed profundity in the Sundam trench of the Pacific exceeding 8000 fathoms: the restlessness of its waves and surface particles visiting in turn all points of its seaboard: the independence of its units: the variability of states of sea: its hydrostatic quiescence in calm: its hydrokinetic turgidity in neap and spring tides: its subsidence after devastation: its sterility in the circumpolar icecaps, arctic and antarctic: its climatic and commercial significance: its preponderance of 3 to 1 over the dry land of the globe: its indisputable hegemony extending in square leagues over all the region below the subequatorial tropic of Capricorn: the multisecular stability of its primeval basin: its luteofulvous bed: its capacity to dissolve and hold in solution all soluble substances including millions of tons of the most precious metals: its slow erosions of peninsulas and islands, its persistent formation of homothetic islands, peninsulas and downwardtending promontories: its alluvial deposits: its weight and volume and density: its imperturbability in lagoons and highland tarns: its gradation of colours in the torrid and temperate and frigid zones: its vehicular ramifications in continental lakecontained streams and c #Quote by James Joyce
Visiting Alma Mater quotes by Ray Bradbury
#24. Up in Illinois, we've forgotten what it's all about. I mean the dead, up in our town, tonight, heck, they're forgotten. Nobody goes to sit and talk to them. Boy, that's lonely. That's really sad. But here-- why, shucks. It's both happy and sad. It's all firecrackers and skeleton toys down here in the plaza and up in that graveyard now are all the Mexican dead folks with the families visiting and flowers and candles and singing and candy. I mean it's almost like Thanksgiving, huh? And everyone set down to dinner, but only half the people able to eat, but that's no mind, they're THERE. It's like holding hands at a séance with your friends, but some of the friends gone. #Quote by Ray Bradbury
Visiting Alma Mater quotes by Paul S. Lynch
#25. My Voice
Paul Stephen Lynch

Why was I born? What is my purpose here on this earth? Is there more out there after this life ends? At some point we all ask ourselves these questions. I can tell you with absolute certainty that for me, the answer to all three of these questions is… "I don't know". However, what I do know is that while I am here I am meant to learn from my mistakes, to grow through my pain, and to evolve. What will I be changed into? Again, I do not know. Perhaps I will become someone who is more courageous, more charitable, more peaceful, more dignified, more honest and more loving. I am very hopeful but nothing in life is guaranteed. Although, I have discovered that speaking from my heart and telling my truth is an integral part of my transformation. It is my voice.

In those times in my life when I have experienced great pain – sadness, loss, conflict or depression – those have been the times that have brought me closest to this transformation. I recently realized that pain is one of the few things that seems to really get my attention and that I have spent a lot of my time just coasting down life's path. Perhaps this is the reason why I seem to grow the most during the hard times, even though it often takes all the energy I can muster just to get through them.

Quite a few years ago, while I was visiting a friend who was dying from AIDS, I saw a tapestry on the hospital wall that read:

The Chinese word #Quote by Paul S. Lynch
Visiting Alma Mater quotes by Fernand Khnopff
#26. It's strange. When I put something incomprehensible into a picture, it's usually because the form and colour interest me and because it just happens to fit in. Thwn my friends come along : 'What is that suppose to mean _' And they rack their brains for an interpretation, finding so many ingenious explanations that I feel quite proud of all the unarticulated ideas concealed in my pictures." - Fernand Khnopff to Alma Mahler, while walking in the Prater in Vienna, from her diary July 1899 #Quote by Fernand Khnopff
Visiting Alma Mater quotes by Lara Biyuts. Vampire Armastus
#27. Flying high in the dark sky, crazy and free, I was happy visiting the worlds and giving death or madness to the people. Either was liberation. #Quote by Lara Biyuts. Vampire Armastus
Visiting Alma Mater quotes by Rumi
#28. The moment an inspiring thought enters your heart, appreciate it as a dear guest visiting you that day. #Quote by Rumi
Visiting Alma Mater quotes by Anonymous
#29. ISRAELI Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu Monday tried to recruit a delegation of 20 former NFL players who were visiting Israel to oppose a nuclear deal with Iran. The group on a trip led by New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft included Curtis Martin of the Jets and Patriots, Thurman Thomas of the Bills and Tim Brown of the Raiders. Netanyahu used football lingo to encourage the players to oppose a nuclear deal the Obama administration and allies hope to strike with Iran. "Iran is one yard away from the goal line," he said. #Quote by Anonymous
Visiting Alma Mater quotes by Shane Koyczan
#30. So if anyone ever tells you:
You're not good enough!
You're not smart enough!
Give up your foolish dream!
If anyone ever tells you to quit,
You got to make them wear a diaper on their mouth
Because, man, they're just talking shit. #Quote by Shane Koyczan
Visiting Alma Mater quotes by John Henry Carver
#31. I had some vague memory of visiting Canberra as a lad, when we came up with my father by car. But when I made the long train journey from Sydney to Canberra and arrived at the little stop, I did wonder slightly whether this really was the national capital. #Quote by John Henry Carver
Visiting Alma Mater quotes by John McCarthy
#32. Hardly anyone has noticed that in the Northern Hemisphere people stir their drinks counterclockwise, whereas the same people stir their drinks clockwise when visiting the Southern Hemisphere. #Quote by John McCarthy
Visiting Alma Mater quotes by Elizabeth Gilbert
#33. But Alma thought it would kill her, this profundity of sorrow. She could not sound out the bottom of it. She had been sinking into it for a year and a half, and feared she would sink forevermore. She cried herself out on Hanneke's neck, sobbing forth the harvest of her long-darkened spirits. She must have poured a tankard of tears down Hanneke's bosom, but Hanneke did not move or speak, except to repeat, There, there, child. It will not kill you. #Quote by Elizabeth Gilbert
Visiting Alma Mater quotes by Carl Sagan
#34. How lucky we are to live in this time / the first moment in human history / when we are in fact visiting other worlds #Quote by Carl Sagan
Visiting Alma Mater quotes by Adam Christopher
#35. The pair sat in silence: the ancient god from across the oceans who had retired, the human host of an ancient god visiting from the heavens. #Quote by Adam Christopher
Visiting Alma Mater quotes by Julie Delpy
#36. Most of our life is miscommunication, and when you add a language barrier to it, it just becomes total mayhem and confusion. It just adds to it with all of the cultural differences. It could be an American family meeting another American family and you could still have a total clash. With family, it's like visiting another planet. #Quote by Julie Delpy
Visiting Alma Mater quotes by Isabel Allende
#37. And what are we going to tell people?" exclaimed Doris. "That I'm old and crazy. That wouldn't be far off the mark," Alma replied. #Quote by Isabel Allende
Visiting Alma Mater quotes by Jean Seberg
#38. My first marriage was not happy. I married him because I was impressed that he knew which wines to order and how to leave his visiting card. Ridiculous reasons. #Quote by Jean Seberg
Visiting Alma Mater quotes by Elizabeth Gilbert
#39. I tell you, Becker," Henry said, "if you make me eat mutton one more night this week, I will have someone shot."
"He doesn't really have people shot," Alma reassured Mr. Pike, under her breath.
"I had figured that," her guest whispered back, "or else I would be dead already. #Quote by Elizabeth Gilbert
Visiting Alma Mater quotes by Barbara Holland
#40. One's own flowers and some of one's own vegetables make acceptable, free, self-congratulatory gifts when visiting friends, though giving zucchini - or leaving it on the doorstep, ringing the bell, and running - is a social faux pas. #Quote by Barbara Holland
Visiting Alma Mater quotes by Alma Hogan Snell
#41. I don't feel that we were savages. We were in a savage land that made us hard, but we were not savages. Savages today are different, different in all ways. Their savagery is done in technical ways, so they are not called savages anymore. I don't know what savage means, really. There are good and bad in every race. There are traditional values that are good and bad. That goes for everybody. #Quote by Alma Hogan Snell
Visiting Alma Mater quotes by Rene Descartes
#42. I entirely abandoned the study of letters. Resolving to seek no knowledge other than that of which could be found in myself or else in the great book of the world, I spent the rest of my youth traveling, visiting courts and armies, mixing with people of diverse temperaments and ranks, gathering various experiences, testing myself in the situations which fortune offered me, and at all times reflecting upon whatever came my way so as to derive some profit from it. #Quote by Rene Descartes
Visiting Alma Mater quotes by J.B. Morton
#43. All over England loving hands are packing trunks and tuck-boxes for the young gentlemen of Narkover, who reassemble today. Eager young voices are heard shouting, 'Mater! Don't forget to put in that pack of cards with the nicked aces,' or 'Auntie Frances, where have you put my dud half-crowns?' From many a home the father is, alas, temporarily absent, behind bars, but the lonely mother has the consolation of seeing her boy develop in the way his father would have wished. #Quote by J.B. Morton
Visiting Alma Mater quotes by Austin V. Songer
#44. The bible teaches us to always solve our differences with our neighbors before visiting the house of God. Jesus himself in his teachings taught that one should solve his differences with their brother before visiting the house of the God. He added that one needs to go talk to the brother in conflict and solve their differences with one on one. As Christians we should not let our differences ruin our relationship with other people. Additionally, Christians should learn on how to solve differences between themselves without involving a third party. #Quote by Austin V. Songer
Visiting Alma Mater quotes by Clifford Ross
#45. The people of Texas are rightly proud of their own, just like the French and the Italians, but visiting artists have often been given a shot in the history of art. #Quote by Clifford Ross
Visiting Alma Mater quotes by Alma Alexander
#46. It is Pau-kala. The branch is still bare. The old tree's leaves will never return - they are a memory and a song. But there is a sapling, there is a sapling right beside that old tree, and it's trembling with promise. There will be a spring again. #Quote by Alma Alexander
Visiting Alma Mater quotes by Ben Stiller
#47. When we were visiting New York City, I took my kids to the same playground where I went growing up. It was fun to feel that connection of having gone there as a kid and being there as a parent. #Quote by Ben Stiller
Visiting Alma Mater quotes by Neal A. Maxwell
#48. The cumulative weight of all mortal sins
past, present, and future
pressed upon that perfect, sinless, and sensitive Soul! All our infirmities and sicknesses were somehow, too, a part of the awful arithmetic of the Atonement. (See Alma 7:11-12; Isa. 53:3-5; Matt. 8:17.) The anguished Jesus not only pled with the Father that the hour and cup might pass from Him, but with this relevant citation. 'And he said, Abba, Father, all things are possible unto thee; take away this cup from me.' (Mark 14:35-36.) #Quote by Neal A. Maxwell
Visiting Alma Mater quotes by Philip Treacy
#49. You always see a better side of where you're visiting when a local shows you around. #Quote by Philip Treacy
