Excerpt from A General Theory Of Love

From A General Theory of Love by UCSF’s Dr. Thomas Lewis.
It’s a great mix of humor, poetics and science.  

“Long-standing togetherness writes permanent changes into a brain’s open book.  In a relationship, one mind revises another; one heart changes its partner. … Who we are and who we become depends, in part, on whom we love.”

"Who we are and who we become depends, in part, on whom we love."

I just started this last night. Started with the 7th chapter about kids. Lots of underlining, including this passage:


  Everything a person is and everything he knows resides in the tangled thicket of his intertwined neurons. These fateful, tiny bridges number in the quadrillions, but they spring from just two sources: DNA and daily life.


First heard about it from Maria.

The idea for the song came to Reid while reading an article about a man arrested for getting drunk and shooting at his girlfriend’s car. The judge asked him if he had learned anything, to which he replied, “I learned, Your Honor, that you can’t make a woman love you if she don’t.”
