“For once desire is articulated in words it does not sit still, but displaces, drifting metonymically from one thing to the next. Desire is a product of language and cannot be satisfied with an object.”
Bruce Fink, A Clinical Introduction to Lacanian Psychoanalysis: Theory and Technique

“It is when patients begin to throw such things into question-when the what, why, and who of their utterances become problematic to them-that they are genuinely engaged in analysis.”
Bruce Fink, A Clinical Introduction to Lacanian Psychoanalysis: Theory and Technique

“Desire is an end in itself: it seeks only more desire, not fixation on a specific object.29”
Bruce Fink, A Clinical Introduction to Lacanian Psychoanalysis: Theory and Technique
