"A golf course is the epitome of all that is purely transitory in the universe; a space not to dwell in, but to get over as quickly as possible"

- Jean Giraudoux

About this Quote

This quote by Jean Giraudoux speaks with the fleeting nature of life. A golf course is a location that is implied to be passed through quickly, not a place to linger. It is a representation of the impermanence of life, and how rapidly things can alter. The golf course is a pointer that life is brief and that we must take advantage of it. It is a suggestion to live in today and to value the minutes we have. The golf course is a metaphor for life, and it is a tip that we should not take anything for granted. We should make the most of our time and take pleasure in the journey, not simply the destination. Life is a journey, and the golf course is a pointer of that.
