[D]esire is neither the appetite for satisfaction nor the demand for love, but the difference that results from the subtraction of the first from the second…. [D]esire begins to take shape in the margin in which demand becomes separated from need.

Jacques Lacan

Also: “[D]esire’s raison d’être is not to realize its goal, to find full satisfaction, but to reproduce itself as desire.” –Slavoj Žižek
