Book cover for Mating in Captivity: Unlocking Erotic Intelligence
When people become fused—when two become one—connection can no longer happen. There is no one to connect with. Thus separateness is a precondition for connection: this is the essential paradox of intimacy and sex.
Bruce D. Perry
“For years mental health professionals taught people that they could be psychologically healthy without social support, that “unless you love yourself, no one else will love you.”…The truth is, you cannot love yourself unless you have been loved and are loved. The capacity to love cannot be built in isolation”
Bruce D. Perry, The Boy Who Was Raised as a Dog: And Other Stories from a Child Psychiatrist's Notebook

Arundhati Roy
“That's what careless words do. They make people love you a little less.”
Arundhati Roy, The God of Small Things

Arundhati Roy
“This was the trouble with families. Like invidious doctors, they knew just where it hurt.”
Arundhati Roy, The God of Small Things

Arundhati Roy
“There is a war that makes us adore our conquerors and despise ourselves.”
Arundhati Roy, The God of Small Things

Blaise Pascal
“I have only made this letter longer because I have not had the time to make it shorter."

(Letter 16, 1657)”
Blaise Pascal, The Provincial Letters
