"Sobria Ebrietas" — the last fragment from Barthes’ A Lover’s Discourse.
Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis are engaged. All the dreams are coming true.
The decision is frequently decided before one knows that one is deciding anything at all. Indeed, the decisiveness of the pre-decision is such that it occides both the decider and “his” decision, effectively subjecting the subject to Decision [as that which arrives, arises, irrupts and intrudes]. By the time one stops to ask, “Should I love this person?”, it is always too late. One either loves or does not love. The question is merely an act, a mental performance staged for and by a singular audience.
Alfred de Musset, Rolla
