2 [Date Today] Dear Mr. Kennelly: Thank you for your letter of April 17
[Date Today] Dear Mr. Kennelly: Thank you for your letter of April 17. After careful consideration I regret to inform you that I am unable to accept your refusal to offer me employment with your firm. This year I have been particularly fortunate in receiving an unusually large number of rejection letters. With such a varied and promising field of candidates it is impossible for me to accept all refusals. Despite Acme Inc.'s outstanding qualifications and previous experience in rejecting applicants, I find that your rejection does not meet with my needs at this time. Therefore, I will initiate employment with your firm immediately following graduation. I look forward to seeing you then. Best of luck in rejecting future candidates. Sincerely, [Your name here]



5 Wisdom 20 Wisdom calls aloud in the street,         she raises her voice in the public squares;  21 at the head of the noisy streets she cries out,         in the gateways of the city she makes her speech. Proverbs 1:20-21

6 Folly 13 The woman Folly is loud;         she is undisciplined and without knowledge.  14 She sits at the door of her house,         on a seat at the highest point of the city,  15 calling out to those who pass by,         who go straight on their way.  16 "Let all who are simple come in here!"         she says to those who lack judgment.  17 "Stolen water is sweet;         food eaten in secret is delicious!"  18 But little do they know that the dead are there,         that her guests are in the depths of the grave.  Proverbs 9:13-18

7 “I had a crisis of faith. I thought you had to
“I had a crisis of faith. I thought you had to experience things if you want to know right from wrong. I’d go to Christian revivals and be moved by the Holy Spirit and I’d go to rock concerts and feel the same fervor. The I’d be told, ‘That’s the Devil’s music! Don’t partake in that!’ I wanted to experience things religion said not to experience. . . When I got untethered from the comfort of religion, it wasn’t a loss of faith for me, it was a discovery of self. I had faith that I’m capable enough to handle any situation.” Brad Pitt

29 "If I was having a bad day, or if something
was really getting me down -boy troubles, whatever- I wanted to go out and get a new piercing. It was definitely a release for me. Something that made me feel a little more strong or empowered. Because it was something that had to do with me and no one else." Christina Aguilera Rolling Stone, November 14, 2002, p. 55.

Yeah, I do.” Kirsten Dunst, Rolling Stone, When asked about Tom Cruise’s Scientology . . . “If it makes Tom Cruise happy, I don’t care if he prays to turtles.
