"Typhon is that desirousness which can only say 'I want.' Whenever anyone gets under this aspect of his own nature the flow of life is dammed up and he finds only frustration.
Relatedness, the laws of Eros, demands that one's own desires shall not be taken as absolute but shall be adapted to the needs and desires of the other person and to the requirements of the situation. This means that one cannot remain in a fixed or taken attitude but must be flexible."
– Esther Harding, Woman's Mysteries p.219
