not me: Why do you have a clock in your purse?

not me: Why do you have a clock in your purse?
me: Because I couldn't find my phone this morning.
not me: I would have called it for you.
me: The battery is dead.
not me: Why is the clock an hour off?
me: Because I never changed it for Daylight Savings.
not me: It must be very complicated to be you.
me: I think that all makes perfect sense.

"It is not acceptable; in isolation you can’t permit yourself, on top of everything else, to torture…"

“It is not acceptable; in isolation you can’t permit yourself, on top of everything else, to torture yourself. Which, as Andreas has said, doesn’t mean that certain experiences must not be endured in the process of liberation from alienation. But to be destroyed because of an understanding of the politics, the facts and how they relate to each other, as well as an understanding of the group, and for choosing to act – that is one thing. It is quite another to be destroyed because isolation strips you of all illusions about yourself, which can be very hard.
And if it is a case of your propensity to act being based on socialization by agony and despair, then struggle on the basis of that.”

- Ulrike Meinhof, Letter to Hanna Krabbe (1976)
