“…the greatest thing by far is to be a master of metaphor. It is the one thing that cannot be learnt from others; and it is also a sign of genius, since a good metaphor implies an intuitive perception of the similarity in dissimilars.”

— Aristotle, Poetics, 1459a

She wrote of Hélène that “she was my accomplice, my subject, my creature. It is plain that I only thought of her as being ‘the same, but different’, which is one way of claiming one’s preeminence. Without ever formulating it in so many words, I assumed that my parents accepted this hierarchy and that I was their favourite.”

It is easy to feel terrible about nearly everything we do (shopping at supermarkets, flying airplanes, buying overpriced coffee, preferencing loved ones over strangers, etc.) when you think about the brutal suffering that many humans experience. But that kind of logic is itself bleak and brutal, and stripped of joy.

The world has a lot of shitty stuff happening, but also a lot of wonderful stuff. That’s life. I think each person needs to accept their reality, whatever it is, and try to do their very best within that context. Some people will try to “change the world,” and that’s admirable. Others will simply try to change themselves – to be the best person they can – and I think that’s actually just as admirable, and possibly more so.
