Duly Noted #4

“What we must work on, it seems to me, is not so much to liberate our desires but to make ourselves infinitely more susceptible to pleasure…” 

-Michel Foucault, “Friendship as a Way of Life”

[Note on a note: the version of the text I read indicates that “pleasure” was translated from the plural “plaisirs,” and I wish the English translation would have followed suit in retaining that emphasis on pleasurable multiplicity.]
