Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

Blessed are the forgetful;
for they get the better even of their blunders.

– Nietzsche; Beyond Good and Evil

How happy is the blameless Vestal’s lot!
The world forgetting, by the world forgot
Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind!
Each pray’r accepted, and each wish resign’d.

Alexander Pope; Eloisa to Abelard

If you’re in a relationship, that’s turning sour, like milk past the expiration date, then grab his/her hand, sit by each other, in each other’s arm, and watch Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, silently, absorbing every little detail they throw at you…

  3. mencegah lebih baik dari mengubati?
