Pay No Attention to Salary Parrot
Topic: Society 8:06 am EDT, May 19, 2011

Catherine Rampell:

Among the members of the class of 2010, just 56 percent had held at least one job by this spring. That compares with 90 percent of graduates from the classes of 2006 and 2007.

Carl Van Horn:

It's like a parrot on your shoulder, traveling with you everywhere, constantly telling you 'No, you can't make that much money.'

Till von Wachter:

If you don't move within five years of graduating, for some reason you get stuck where you are. That's just an empirical finding.


Living in the north Perimeter area for 6 odd years now has told me that everybody makes way, way more money than I do. It's not inspiring so much as it makes you sympathize with class warfare.

Is our curse the endless pursuit of a happiness which can never be attained?

Judith Warner:

We're all losers now. There's no pleasure to it.

The Economist's Washington correspondent:

I thought I was unlucky graduating into the tech bust. I had no idea.

David Foster Wallace:

The really important kind of freedom involves attention, and awareness, and discipline, and effort, and being able truly to care about other people and to sacrifice for them, over and over, in myriad petty little unsexy ways, every day. That is real freedom. The alternative is unconsciousness, the default-setting, the "rat race" -- the constant gnawing sense of having had and lost some infinite thing.

Anne Frank:

As long as you can look fearlessly at the sky, you'll know that you're pure within and will find happiness once more.


If you look carefully you can see large objects that were picked up and are spinning around in the storm.
