Desire has reserved to itself the pure negating of the object and thereby unalloyed feeling of self.

This satisfaction, however, just for that reason is itself only a state of evanescence, for it lacks objectivity or subsistence.

Labour, on the other hand, is desire restrained and checked, evanescence delayed and postponed; in other words, labour shapes and fashions the thing.
from Hegel's Phenomenology of Mind, on "Self-Consciousness."

I know my way down the side streets now.
