bookshelves: changedmylife
Recommended for: those concerned with escape, pleasure, and how we treat others
Read in January, 2006

"this term escape [...] is world-weariness, the disorder of our time" (52)

"being naked is not question of wearing clothes" (65)

i decided one day that i wanted to stop exising. not really die. not really get away to some spa where they put mud on your face and make you feel like a million bucks. just...lie on my bed and not have to get up until millions of years later.

levinas taught me about leaving myself and the obsession with being in oneself.
