quotes: on being-there

Posted by rigorousm on December 25, 2010

The truth is, I am rarely with the person I am with, so to say; and I’m sure that many of us, even most of us, share this condition of dependence upon an inner scenery, imagined and remember erotic fragments, shadows irrelevant to the body above or beneath us– those images our minds accept inside sexual seizure but exclude once the beast has been routed, for, regardless of how tolerant we are, these cameos are intolerable to the meanspirited watchmen within us.

— Truman Capote, Answered Prayers pp. 18-19.
