Whenever I go anywhere these days I take my camera. I take pictures of this, that and the other thing. That means I have a lot of pictures of nothing in particular in my computer. All those pictures need some organizing. While flipping through the photos I found several of gates. Do you think I took pictures of gates for a reason? Is there symbolism in these pictures of gates?
If you only knock long enough and loud enough at the gate, you are sure to wake up somebody. Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
No one can persuade another to change. Each of us guards a gate of change that can only be opened from the inside. We cannot open the gate of another, either by argument or emotional appeal. Marilyn Ferguson
Both in thought and in feeling, even though time be real, to realise the unimportance of time is the gate of wisdom. Bertrand Russell
I believe the future is only the past again, entered through another gate. Arthur W. Pinero
Go on thinking that you don't need to be read and you'll find that it may become quite true: no one will feel the need to read it because it is written for yourself alone; and the public won't feel any impulse to gate crash such a private party. Dylan Thomas
