"infants begin to see by noticing the edges of things. how do they know an edge is an edge? by passionately wanting it not to be."

"where does that hole come from? it comes from the lover's classifactory process. Desire for an object that he never knew he lacked is defined, by a shift of distance, as desire for a necessary part of himself. Not a new acquisition but something that was always, properly. his. Two lacks become one."

from Eros the bittersweet, by Anne Carson
