“The neurotic ‘is impoverished in his ego and is incapable of fulfilling his ego ideal’ but there is hope, because ‘the cure by love’ is to give up outlandishly high standards, in short, one loves when one is not ‘choosing a sexual ideal after the narcissistic type which possesses the excellences to which’ one ‘cannot attain’, to use Freud’s words.” – http://ift.tt/1MIThiB
