Jacques Lacan

"Desire is the central point or crux of the entire economy we deal with in analysis. If we fail to take it into account, we are necessarily led to adopt as our only guide what is symbolized by the term 'reality,' a reality existing in a social context."

"An interpretation whose effects one understands is not a psychoanalytic interpretation."

"The analyst asks neither that the subject get better nor that he become normal; the analyst requires nothing, imposes nothing. He is there so that the subject may gain access to the truth of his desire, his own desire, and not so that he may respond to the Other's demand."

"All speech is demand. Every demand [is] a request for love."
