"Intimacy is a dangerous thing. It comes in two flavors: pleasure and truth. The intimacy of pleasure is self-serving and exploitative. It takes from the other the most private of gifts for the sake of the self. It is the taking of the secret for the pleasure of retelling it; it is the taking of affection for the sake of satisfaction; it is the taking of the gift for the sake of being embellished; it is the taking of the other for the stature of the self." Joan Chittister
