A Single Man, Tom Ford, 2009
George: A few times in my life I've had moments of absolute clarity, when for a few brief seconds the silence drowns out the noise and I can feel rather than think, and things seem so sharp and the world seems so fresh. I can never make these moments last. I cling to them, but like everything, they fade. I have lived my life on these moments. They pull me back to the present, and I realize that everything is exactly the way it was meant to be.
Experience is not what happens to a man; it is what a man does with what happens to him.
Texts and Pretexts, Aldous Huxley
