Human existence is so fragile a thing and exposed to such dangers that I cannot love without trembling. Simone Weil

Human beings are so made that the ones who do the crushing feel nothing; it is the person crushed who feels what is happening. Unless one has placed oneself on the side of the oppressed, to feel with them, one cannot understand.Simone Weil

Warsan Shire
“My alone feels so good, I'll only have you if you're sweeter than my solitude.”
Warsan Shire

Judith Butler
“...gender is a kind of imitation for which there is no original; in fact, it is a kind of imitation that produces the very notion of the original as an effect and consequence of the imitation itself...what they imitate is a phantasmic ideal of heterosexual identity...gay identities work neither to copy nor emulate heterosexuality, but rather, to expose heterosexuality as an incessant and panicked imitation of its own naturalized idealization. That heterosexuality is always in the act of elaborating itself is evidence that it is perpetually at risk, that it, that it 'knows' it's own possibility of becoming undone”
Judith Butler

Aristophanes
“Love is merely the name for the desire and pursuit of the whole.”
Aristophanes

Walt Whitman
“I do not ask the wounded person how he feels, I myself become the wounded person.”
Walt Whitman, Song of Myself

Simone Weil
“Human beings are so made that the ones who do the crushing feel nothing; it is the person crushed who feels what is happening. Unless one has placed oneself on the side of the oppressed, to feel with them, one cannot understand.”
Simone Weil, Lectures on Philosophy
