Quod me nutrit me destruit

What nourishes me also destroys me.

Popped into my head tonight after my Twitter which declared “Sometimes the things I love the most, drain me the most.”  Along the same lines huh?  Quod me nutrit me destruit wasn’t in my head when I thought that.

I looked up the quote b/c I wanted to remember where I heard it… *sigh* Angie Jolie has it tatted on her and apparently it is a popular slogan for pro-anas.  Ack.

But I take it to mean exactly how it was meant to be: Generally interpreted to mean that that which motivates or drives a person can consume him or her from within.
