Zitate Andrew Solomon

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

—  Andrew Solomon
Context: 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 Ch. 1 Son, p 37.

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

—  Andrew Solomon
Context: 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. Ch. 12 Father, p. 687.

„I want more than anything for my children to be happy, and I love them because they are sad, and the erratic project of kneading that sadness into joy is the engine of my life“

—  Andrew Solomon
Context: I want more than anything for my children to be happy, and I love them because they are sad, and the erratic project of kneading that sadness into joy is the engine of my life as a father, as a son, as a friend—and as a writer. Ch. 12 Father, p. 701.
