Can One Ever Successfully Possess or Fully Know Another Person?

Posted on March 29, 2014 at 4:38 PM
“Marriage … that odd mixture of violent devotion and legitimate lust in which desire eventually gives way to a forced and decorous composure that captures the essential opacity of even one’s most intimate partner”

Alberto Moravia (translated from Italian)

The quote on marriage is one disgruntled man's opinion. I would hope you would not offer this up as a guide to clients or self.

I'm not sure that I take this as a disgruntled perspective, necessarily. I do like to occasionally include in my blog potentially thought-provoking quotes and/or observations that make people question, and raise consciousness about, their 'status quos'. I'd like to believe I am offering them a positive opportunity in doing so.
