“Comme tout devient concret dans le monde d’une âme quand un objet, quand une simple porte vient donner les images de l’hésitation, de la tentation, du désir, de la sécurité, du libre accueil, du respect ! On dirait toute sa vie si l’on faisait le récit de toutes les portes qu’on a fermées, qu’on a ouvertes, de toutes les portes qu’on voudrait rouvrir.

“How concrete everything becomes in a world of the spirit, when an object, a mere door, can give images of hesitation, temptation, desire, security, welcome and respect.  If one were to give an account of all the doors one has closed and opened, of all the doors one would like to re-open, one would have to tell the story of one’s entire life.”

-Gaston Bachelard, French Philosopher, La poétique de l’espace. (The Poetics of Space)
