Alain Badiou
“Love can only consist in failure...on the fallacious assumption that it is a relationship. But it is not. It is a production of truth.”
Alain Badiou, Conditions

D.H. Lawrence
“For my part, I prefer my heart to be broken. It is so lovely, dawn-kaleidoscopic within the crack.”
D.H. Lawrence

Fyodor Dostoevsky
“Above all, don't lie to yourself. The man who lies to himself and listens to his own lie comes to a point that he cannot distinguish the truth within him, or around him, and so loses all respect for himself and for others. And having no respect he ceases to love.”
Fyodor Dostoevsky, The Brothers Karamazov

Alain Badiou
“All resistance is a rupture with what is. And every rupture begins, for those engaged in it, through a rupture with oneself.”
Alain Badiou, Metapolitics

“If we have forgotten our total dependency upon God, then there is nothing left for us but to try to depend upon other people’s attention to us, because without such attention we don’t even feel like human beings. Instead of paying attention to God, we become beggars for the attention of others, constantly trying to make them pity us or look up to us. But this is not true human relatedness, only mutual idolatry.”
Charles Upton
