East of Eden - John Steinbeck

This quote was added by otdrgrl11
Time interval is a strange and contradictory matter in the mind. It would be reasonable to suppose that a routine time or an eventless time would seem interminable. It should be so, but it is not. It is the dull eventless times that have no duration whatever. A time splashed with interest, wounded with tragedy, crevassed with joy - that's the time that seems long in memory. Eventlessness has no posts to drape duration on. From nothing to nothing is no time at all.
