A Quote by Joseph Campbell on eternity, experience, heaven, and life

Eternity has nothing to do with the hereafter. . . This is it. . . If you don't get it here, you won't get it anywhere. The experience of eternity right here and now is the function of life. Heaven is not the place to have the experience; here's the place to have the experience.
