The Angel in The Marble

“I happened across this Michelangelo quote via this Hidden Brain podcast on the subject of marriage, and I rather liked it. Social psychologist Eli Finkel describes in the podcast his ideas around the all or nothing marriage, and how our expectations around marriage have grown to such an extent that a marriage that would have been acceptable to us in the 1950s would likely be a disappointment to us today, but also how the flip side of that is that with investment and work modern marriages can be more amazing than ever. Finkel uses the quote as a metaphor for how a great marriage can bring out the best of what’s already there and enable both partners to flourish”: The Angel in The Marble
