Symbols All Around

"Everyone thinks I'm either being a wise guy or ducking responsibility, but neither is the case.  Seriously, what do you think it stands for, because that's probably what it does." - Thomas C. Foster, How to Read Literature Like a Professor, Chapter 12

I believe that Foster is onto something here!  It's completely true!  Any time you are reading a piece of literature, and you think that, oh I don't know, the color yellow, could be a symbol, more than likely, you can find some sort of evidence in the text that proves that it is a symbol.  In other words, you can be right regardless of how ridiculous your theory is.

How awesome is that!!
