Quote for Today: Alain de Botton


Sweetness is the opposite of machismo, which is everywhere – and I really don’t get on with machismo. I’m interested in sensitivity and weakness and fear and anxiety because I think that, at the end of the day, behind our masks, that’s what we are.

Alain de Botton, quoted in New Yorker Magazine, 2013
