Quote of the Day – March 24

“The dichotomy between the spiritual and the political is false, resulting from an incomplete attention to our erotic knowledge. A bridge which connects the spiritual and the political is formed by the erotic. The sensual, those physical, emotional, psychic expressions of what is deepest and strongest and richest within each one of us, being shared. The passions of love in its deepest meanings. The considerate phrase, “it feels right to me,” acknowledges the strength of the erotic into a true knowledge. For what that phrase means and feels is the first and most powerful guiding light toward any understanding. And I ask that you remember always, understanding is a handmaiden. A handmaiden which can only wait upon or clarify that knowledge deeply-born. And the erotic is the nurturer or nursemaid of our deepest knowledge.” – Audre Lorde, The Uses of the Erotic
