"A little while ago, at a dinner party, I met a prominent analyst, a Kleinian. He is the first therapist I’ve known socially, and I confided in him. 'I’d like to go back into therapy, but all four therapists I’ve seen in my life have fallen asleep.' He didn’t laugh. Nor did he ask me how I felt. Instead he took it in, turned it over in his mind, then said, very carefully, 'Well, the common denominator here is you.'” -- Stephen Metcalf, "The Sleeping Cure"
