Duration vs. Quality

“The importance of events in any life is more directly proportionate to their intensity than to their extensity. It may take a man a year to travel around the world—and leave absolutely no impression on him. Then again it may take him only a second to see the face of a woman—and change his entire future.” (James K. Feibleman, Philosophers Lead Sheltered Lives (London: Allen & Unwin, 1952), p. 55. )
