the collector

For a collector – and I mean a real collector, a collector as he ought to be – ownership is the most intimate relationship that one can have with objects. Not that they come alive in him; it is he who lives in them.
–Walter Benjamin, “Illuminations”

A great quote from the Small Obsessions blog.  Looking forward to seeing this exhibit at the Somerville Museum this May (thanks to my very astute mother for sending me the links)!
