From Sheila Heti:

November 23, 2015

Then, when your heart sinks again, it sinks from the death drive like a serpent creeping in – but from another direction this time … You missed it, and the serpent slithered in. It is death coming, masquerading as life, and blessed is the man who can see the death drive in the woman. Blessed is he who leaves in the morning without the promise of love. And blessed is the woman who can answer for herself: What about ‘living?’ What is it about ‘living’ that you want?

– From How Should a Person Be?
