“Love is linked to the fact that in the end we know nothing about the object
that attracts us in the Other, and that at the same time the Other knows nothing
about this object that is in him more than himself, i.e. what makes someone
attracted to him.”
Renata Salecl, On Anxiety

“By working so hard at self-improvement we lose the energy and ability to participate in any form of social change”
Renata Salecl

“The idea of choice has deeply penetrated our perception of feelings, as though we can ‘choose’ whether or not to have them.”
Renata Salecl, Choice
