Quotable Quote

I adore this quote. It reminds me how everything is interwoven and connected, and what we create become mirrors of us and our story, the living of it and the telling of it.

Everything is biographical, Lucian Freud says. What we make, why it is made, how we draw a dog, who it is we are drawn to, why we cannot forget. Everything is collage, even genetics. There is the hidden presence of others in us, even those we have known briefly. We contain them for the rest of our lives, at every border we cross.~ Michael Ondaatje
