Quote of the day, yay!

'It’s hard to recognize that your whole being, your soul doesn’t move at the speed of your cognition. That it could take you a year to really know something that you intellectually believe in a second [...] how not to feel ashamed of the amount of time things take, or the recalcitrance of emotional or personal change.'

-- Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick, 'The reeducation of a queer theorist' (in conversation with Maria Russo), 1999

[Thanks to my wife, Iakovos Amperidis, for sending the quote. Picture is Tyler Curtain as Eve from Lauren Berlant's blog.]
