“I love to you means I maintain a relation of indirection to you. I do not subjugate you
or consume you. I respect you (as irreducible). I hail you: in you I hail. I praise you:
in you I praise. I give you thanks: to you I give thanks for … I bless you.
"The 'to' is the guarantor of indirection. The "to" prevents the
relation of transitivity, bereft of the other's irreducibility and potential
reciprocity. The "to" maintains intransitivity between persons, between the
interpersonal question, speech or gift: I speak to you, I ask of you, I give to you (and
not: I give you to another).
The "to" is the sign of non-immediacy, of mediation between us.”
