We are not passively affected by the object of love..

..We actively affect ourselves by loving

– JOAN COPJEC (Imagine There’s No Woman, p81)


“She has sacrificed her strategy of sacrifice to adopt a different, an ethical strategy that I hesitate to name: love.” – JOAN COPJEC on clinging no longer to the idea of gaining meaning through sacrficing oneself every day. This is shown in the movingly Lacanian film Stella Dallas http://ift.tt/1D9XOpy
