Hanna Segal

  • When you love somebody, you want something pretty exclusive with them. But when love exceeds a certain limit it becomes damaging. It begins to infringe upon the other's life, upon their minds and their possibilities. Love has become possession. When you possess the other person, it has more to do with envy and greed and with your own narcissism than with love.
