“A woman is not complementary to a man but rather embodies his lack [and vice versa.] The real cannot be inscribed, but we can inscribe this impossibility itself [the impossibility of inscribing the real into the symbolic by granting it representation in language]. We can locate its place.” – Slavoj Zizek [The subject arises from the failure of its representation and likewise love can arise from a similar lack]
