Jacques-Alain Miller
On Love
Lacan used to say, ‘To love is to give what you haven’t got.’ Which means: to love is to recognize your lack and give it to the other, place it in the other. It’s not giving what you possess, goods and presents, it’s giving something else that you don’t possess, which goes beyond you.
To Forget is Murder
Love is never a whole, except perhaps the love of God. If only because it puts you in dependence vis-à-vis the loved subject, it raises necessarily aggressiveness, even hatred. Forgetting is already in itself a symbolic murder.
