"Texts always say more than their authors mean; they exert a resistance to the wishes or intentions of individuals—either producers or receivers—because of their inherent and uncontrollable excessiveness, their openness to future or other meanings and contexts. This does not imply an interpretative relativism of the ‘anything goes’ attitude, whereby one can impose any interpretation with equal validity onto any text. Rather, texts themselves have a resistance, a viscosity, to some interpretations more than to others. Even if there are not ‘right’ or correct interpretations, there can still be misinterpretations."
— Elizabeth Grosz, “Feminist Theory and the Politics of Art” (1994)

"If you were to press your heart close up against somebody else’s heart eventually your hearts will start beating at the same time. And two little babies in an incubator, their hearts will beat at the same time. Love that. So if you have somebody in your life that is prone to anxiety, like myself, and if you happen to be a calm person, you could come up and hug me heart to heart and my heart hopefully would slow to yours. And I just love that idea. Or maybe yours would speed up to mine. But either way, we’ll be there together."
— Andrea Gibson  (via 5000letters)
