Compassion, composition

Chris Kraus, in an interview in Tarpaulin Sky:

I’ve never seen compassion as an abstract noun. If you accept that we’re all composed largely of other people we’ve known, then compassion becomes a form of self-love. Compassion, composition. Awkwardness and grace live side by side.
