Quote by Oscar Wilde
Young people, nowadays, imagine that money is everything, and when they grow older, they know it
to be true. The quote highlights how young individuals often prioritize material wealth and mistakenly believe that money is the key to happiness or fulfillment. However, as they grow older and gain more life experience, they come to realize the limitations of money in providing true satisfaction and contentment. This quote suggests that wisdom and perspective acquired with age contribute to a deeper understanding of the true value and purpose of money.
What pornographic literature does is precisely to drive a wedge between one's existence as a full human being and one's existence as a sexual being -- while in ordinary life a healthy person is one who prevents such a gap from opening up. Normally we don't experience, at least don't want to experience, our sexual fulfillment as distinct from or opposed to our personal fulfillment. But perhaps in part they are distinct, whether we like it or not.
