About this Quote

This quote by Art Rooney is a reflection on the short-term nature of life. It speaks to the concept that life is unforeseeable and that possibilities can come and go promptly. Rooney is suggesting that he worked for a brief time period, yet he never went back to accumulate his pay. This can be interpreted as a metaphor permanently, because we frequently have chances that reoccur, as well as we might not constantly take advantage of them. It could also be interpreted as a discourse on the short-term nature of the working globe, where jobs can be temporary and also people may not always have the ability to collect their pay. Inevitably, this quote speaks to the concept that life is unpredictable which we ought to take advantage of the chances that come our means.
