“One reason we rush so quickly to the vulgar satisfactions of judgment, and love to revel in our righteous outrage, is that it spares us from the impotent pain of empathy, and the harder, messier work of understanding.”
Tim Kreider, We Learn Nothing

“if you want to enjoy the rewards of being loved, you also have to submit to the mortifying ordeal of being known.”
Tim Kreider, I Wrote This Book Because I Love You: Essays

“The Soul Toupee is that thing about ourselves we are most deeply embarrassed by and like to think we have cunningly concealed from the world, but which is, in fact, pitifully obvious to everybody who knows us.”
Tim Kreider, We Learn Nothing
