Quote of the Day 3

Jonah Lehrer, from his book proposal, A Book About Love:

“Careers fall apart; homes fall down; we give away what we don’t want and sell what we can’t afford.  And yet, if we are lucky, such losses reveal what remains.  When we are stripped of what we wanted, we see what we will always need:  those people who love us, even after the fall.”

In 2012, Lehrer lost his job at The New Yorker for fabricating quotes and plagiarizing (from himself!) and had his book ImagineHow Creativity Works recalled by the publisher.  It was a stunning plunge for someone who had enormous success as a young man.
