Quote by DOUGLAS STONE - Deepstash

One principle for how we recognize our experiences is this: we are usually the sympathetic hero of the story. In his speech to a graduating class at Kenyon, writer David Foster Wallace observed that there is “no experience you’ve had that you were not at the absolute center of it”. We are each lords of our own tiny skull-sized kingdoms.In our story we are Dorothy, the princess or Rudolph not the Wicked Witch the Pea or any of the other reindeer.
