Hope it makes you feel better:

People are afraid of themselves, of their own reality; their feelings most of all. People talk about how great love is, but that’s bullshit. Love hurts. Feelings are disturbing. People are taught that pain is evil and dangerous. How can they deal with love if they’re afraid to feel? Pain is meant to wake us up. People try to hide their pain. But they’re wrong. Pain is something to carry, like a radio. You feel your strength in the experience of pain. It’s all in how you carry it. That’s what matters. Pain is a feeling. Your feelings are a part of you. Your own reality. If you feel ashamed of them, and hide them, you’re letting society destroy your reality. You should stand up for your right to feel your pain.

Desire is to law as drive is to speeding.

Desire is to law as drive is to being (subject).

Love the comment mariana ;-)

As long as you enjoy speeding for its own sake then it's drive (imagine a peregrine falcon skydiving for the simple pleasure of it). If you are speeding to somehow invoke the law (by being stopped by a cop or for the enjoyment of telling the story of your speeding) then it is desire.

Although more fleeting, the pleasure derived from the drives is more enjoyable (and more in service to the special particularities of the subject) than that of desire which is in the service of bridging separation.
