“Men are jealous of every woman, even when they don’t have the slightest interest in her themselves.”
Jan Neruda, Prague Tales

“I hear there are people who actually enjoy moving. Sounds like a disease to me - they must be unstable. Though it does have it’s poetry, I’ll allow that. When an old dwelling starts looking desolate, a mixture of regret and anxiety comes over us and we feel like we are leaving a safe harbor for the rolling sea. As for the new place, it looks on us with alien eyes, it has nothing to say to us, it is cold.”
Jan Neruda, Prague Tales

“At least when one speaks of oneself one is passionate, well-informed and specific.”
Jan Neruda, Prague Tales
