The Sheltering Sky - Paul Bowles

This quote was added by yakimi
How many more times will you remember a certain afternoon of your childhood, some afternoon that is so deeply a part of your being that you can't even conceive of your life without it? Perhaps four or five times more, perhaps not even that. How many more times will you watch the full moon rise? Perhaps twenty. And yet it all seems limitless.

Is it bad that I remember this because Brandon Lee quoted it during an interview on the set of The Crow?
