Quote by Alexandra Robbins
It's not about what you've done; it's how you've experienced whatever has happened to you. Matt Lawrence in The Overachievers
This quote suggests that the significance of someone's experiences lies not in the mere actions or achievements they have accomplished, but rather in the way they have experienced and processed those events. It suggests that one's perspective, emotions, and personal growth derived from their experiences hold greater importance than the external measures of success. This quote encourages individuals to focus on their personal journey and introspection, rather than solely obsessing over tangible achievements.
Movies are one of the bad habits that corrupted our century. Of their many sins, I offer as the worst their effect on the intellectual side of the nation.

As Venus within Eros does not really aim at pleasure, so Eros does not aim at happiness. We may think he does, but when he is brought to the test it proves otherwise... For it is the very mark of Eros that when he is in us we had rather share unhappiness with the Beloved than be happy on any other terms.
