Identity Quote of the Day

“What do most of us mean when we say that we know someone well? We mean that we have constructed a mental image of that person, a sort of robot which functions adequately, except perhaps in revealing moments of crisis, and thereby saves us the fatigue of continually wondering what our friend is ‘really like.’ We have decided, once and for all, what he is like–arbitrarily accepting certain aspects of his personality and rejecting others–and our robot embodies our decision.”-Christopher Isherwood
