109 43
Can anyone point me to the significance of 43 related to Forrest? I don't think the 109th use of the letter q or 109th O after page 109 has any significance, but I am certain that 43 is important. Anything that Forrest has put out that makes 43 significant?

This is probably a stretch, but Hillcrest cemetery row 4 of block 23 is four two three, or four "to" three.

Also, he turned 13 in 1943 or '43. There is a full page picture of him at age 13 at the beginning of the chapter "Jump Starting the Learning Curve", with a 1943 postmark. Anomaly is him referring to thinking about starting the seventh grade -- shouldn't this have been 8th grade? Was he held back a year? But he also describes that kids generally were not held back a grade in that time period, even with bad grades.

My favorite, however, would be Elizabeth Barret Browning' Sonnets from the Portuguese:

Number 43

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of Being and ideal Grace.
I love thee to the level of everyday's
Most quiet need, by sun and candlelight.
I love thee freely, as men strive for Right;
I love thee purely, as they turn from Praise.
I love thee with the passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood's faith.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints,—I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life!—and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death.

Sounds like Ode to Peggy Jean.

Thank you so much. Not really a big significance then, but what is significant we may never know.
