Money Wisdom #328

"Intimacy is not expressed by a thing except on one condition: that this thing be essentially the opposite of a thing, the opposite of a product, of a commodity - a consumption and a sacrifice. Since intimate feeling is a consumption, it is consumption that expresses it, not a thing, which is its negation."

Georges Bataille The Accursed Share (1988 [1967]) p.132
