When I lectured at Eugene, Oregon, on the stages of life as Dante describes them in the ‘Convivio’

When I lectured at Eugene, Oregon, on the stages of life as Dante describes them in the ‘Convivio’ – youth, maturity, age, wisdom – a young woman came up to me and said, ‘We go directly today, Mr. Campbell, from infancy to wisdom.’ ‘That’s really wonderful,’ I said. ‘All you’ve missed is life.’

-- Joseph Campbell
