  1. That’s interesting. One of my favorite writers, Ayn Rand, once wrote “Tell me what a man finds sexually attractive and I will tell you his entire philosophy of life. Show me the woman he sleeps with and I will tell you his valuation of himself.” Kind of an interesting parallel!

    1. Yea, the quote is really revealing. I love how it displays how we are mirrors of not just who we love but what we love. If from a physical point of view I love a murderer then a murderer is who I am. Powerful quote.
