The conversation

“We define our identity always in dialogue with, sometimes in struggle against, the things our significant others want to see in us. Even after we outgrow some of these others—our parents, for instance—and they disappear from our lives, the conversation with them continues within us as long as we live.” ~ Charles Taylor, Multiculturalism

  1. So true. We are always engaged in some form of conversation or the other- it does not matter with who but the fact remains that we are engaged in a conversation either actively or passively and constantly driven by it..
    Many thanks for such a wonderful insight.
