Book Note: Persuasion and Rhetoric by Carlo Michelstaedter #8

For one loves and turns his gaze toward ward total possession, identity, and the other is touched and overconscientious about what he thinks he possesses-in order that it should remain for him in the future. But to the extent tent that he possesses it, that much is he possessed by it. 

True opposition to Stirner, who reifies the ego as that which is measured precisely by what it can internalize as property. The ego is perfect rhetoric.
