Frasi Andrew Solomon

„Mental illness is real illness“

—  Andrew Solomon

The Noonday Demon: An Atlas of Depression

„I wish the autistic child I have did not exist, and I had a different [nonautistic] child instead.“

—  Andrew Solomon

Origine: Far from the Tree, Ch. 1 Son, p 37.
Contesto: When parents say, "I wish my child did not have autism," what they're really saying is "I wish the autistic child I have did not exist, and I had a different [nonautistic] child instead." Read that again. This is what we hear when you mourn over our existence. This is what we hear when you pray for a cure. This is what we know, when you tell us of your fondest hopes and dreams for us: that your greatest wish is that one day we will cease to be, and strangers you can love will move in behind our faces. —Jim Sinclair

„Any of us can be a better version of himself, but none of us can be someone else.“

—  Andrew Solomon

Origine: Far from the Tree, Ch. 12 Father, p. 687.
Contesto: A wise psychiatrist once said to me, "People want to get better, but they don't want to change." But I would propose that it is only by allowing people born with horizontal identities not to change that one allows them to get better. Any of us can be a better version of himself, but none of us can be someone else.
