“But I can’t imagine you with all your complexity, all you perfection, all your imperfection. Look at you. You are just a shade of my real wife. You’re the best I can do; but I’m sorry, you are just not good enough. ”
This quote has always reminded me of the Nerdfighterian idea to imagine others complexly. The character Cobb’s dilemma is a beautiful example of how even in our mind, we cannot capture the complicated essence that creates an individual.
