Quote of the day, yay! (Valentine's Day special)

'If we could try to experience love as a quality – like compassion or courage – and focus less on love as an event, something that happens, then love would belong to us, rather than being dependent on us belonging to someone.'

-- Jeanette Winterson (via Lynne Segal), 'The money has gone, so make love our alternative currency', The Guardian, 14 February 2012.

[Hear Lynne Segal and Stephen Frosh's wonderful talks on 'Intimacy and Love' at Birkbeck's The Importance of Being Human lecture series (14 February 2011): http://backdoorbroadcasting.net/2011/02/lynne-segal-stephen-frosh-intimacy-and-love.]
