quotes: winterson on selving

Posted by rigorousm on January 13, 2011

It is not necessary to be shut up in one self, to grind through life like an ox at a mill, always treading the same ground. Human beings are capable of powered flight; we can travel across ourselves and find that self multiple and vast.

– Jeanette Winterson, “The Semiotics of Sex” pg 116, Art Objects: Essays on Ecstasy and Effontery.
