Claire Cait Byrne

Major: B.S in Elementary Education

Quote: “I love my life’s dark hours
In which my senses quicken and grow deep,

Myself in days gone by: again I give
Myself unto the past:—again I live.” – Rainer Maria Rilke

Quote: “But why had he always felt so strongly the magnetic pull of home, why had he thought so much about it and remembered it with such blazing accuracy, if it did not matter, and if this little town, and the immortal hills around it, was not the only home he had on earth? He did not know. All that he knew was that the years flow by like water, and that one day men come home again.” ―Thomas Wolfe
