Quotable: The Chairs are Where the People Go

Saturday 28 April 2012
"Love is what happens between people living their lives together, becoming close through contact and actual partnership, and it's what survives through difficulties and imperfections. An idealized, imagined, faraway person in your heart — that's not love. That's a daydream. People often mistake that daydream for love, so either they're diappointed when love doesn't measure up to that daydream, or they try to protect that daydream from being sullied by real life."

— Misha Glouberman with Sheila Heti, The Chairs are Where the People Go: How to Live, Work, and Play in the City
