Zizek on Love

What is love? Love is not idealization. Every true lover knows it. If you really love, a woman or a man, you don’t idealize him or her. Love means that you accept a person with all its failures, stupidities, ugly points, and, nonetheless, the person is absolute for you, everything that makes life worth living, but you see perfection in imperfection itself. And that is how we should learn to love the world.

    This is very true, life is not perfect, people are not perfect, they will let you down, they will say and do things the regret and they will wish they could make time go backwards and take back their words but unfortunately the laws of the universe don’t allow that, not even for neutrinos.
