"Love is a choice that is experienced as necessity. At a certain point, one is overwhelmed by the feeling that one already is in love, and that one cannot do otherwise. By definition, therefore, comparing qualities of respective candidates, deciding with whom to fall in love, cannot be love."
"What else is falling in love if not such an act, a gesture in the face of impossibility? We will have to risk taking steps into the abyss, in totally inappropriate situations...We will have to reinvent aspects of the new.”
- Slavoj Žižek
