I’ve been muttering about longer quotes for a while now, so here we are.
I’ve had my interview. I think it went OK, I was nervous as a nervous thing. It’s a cool-sounding job, in the city, in a great building with awesome offices. After the spoken interview, I was bundled off to do a writing test! That was cool. Writing features a decent amount in this job, from the sounds of it, and so I’m pretty keen.
I hear back soon, next week I think, about second interviews.
So today I’m in the mood for something from Monsieur Flaubert. I think it’s the kind of quote that can be reworded a bit, shaped to the person’s whims and altered to express something just slightly different, because it’s just that sort of sentiment.
The most glorious moments in your life are not the so-called moments of success, but rather those days when out of despair and dejection you feel rise in you a challenge to life, and the promise of future accomplishments.
