Thinking Tears That Tear Us

We are all born with tears in our eyes. Our cry is the first sign of life to our caregivers. It is our way of coming into the world. The cry and tears are performative. They mark the distance between us and the world. This marking of distance continues every time we cry and tears roll down our eyes....


Hypocrisy is the tribute that vice pays to virtue.
