On love…Alain de Botton

Video

“… any of our ideas about love comes from reading novels… essentially we are shaped by the love narratives that we read. … We love within a very historical social context…” 

“… romanticism has been a catastrophe to our capacity to have good long-term relationships…”

Alain de Botton: On Love (at the Sydney Opera House, 10 July 2016)

 

What does he mean? True for you? 

Watch and enjoy. 🙂
