„Living is like tearing through a museum.“

As quoted in Audrey Hepburn : A Bio-bibliography (1994) by David Hofstede
Contesto: Living is like tearing through a museum. Not until later do you really start absorbing what you saw, thinking about it, looking it up in a book, and remembering — because you can't take it all in at once.

Contesto: The thing that irks me most is this shattered prison, after all. I’m tired, tired of being enclosed here.
