Quote: Paradox of Love

"You will notice that what we are aiming at when we fall in love is a very strange paradox. The paradox consists of the fact that, when we fall in love, we are seeking to re-find all or some of the people to whom we were attached as children. On the other hand, we ask our beloved to correct all of the wrongs that these early parents or siblings inflicted upon us. So that love contains in it the contradiction: The attempt to return to the past and the attempt to undo the past."

-Crimes and Misdemeanors (1989, Woody Allen)

It's weird to quote WA on the subject of love but I liked this quote from a fictional philosopher in the movie. Maybe there is a model of Professor Levy character? I think I read something similar before but can't remember where. It's a thought-provoking movie about morality and human nature..
