To him, “The Persistence of Memory” by Salvador Dali was nothing but a poor attempt to make a desert seem like it was full of life and meaning when in fact it was just a painting with no real substance.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
